Question: I have a problem with my right foot.I can walk on it, but after about a hour of being on it and I sit down its sore. The outside of it burns and across the inside arch if it's bent has sharp stabbing pain. When I go to stand on it at any time throughout the day it takes a minute for my foot to stop hurting. After I am standing on it I'm ok but the pain is there just not as bad as when I'm off my foot. Please help this is starting to affect my daily life. I can't do daily cleaning or shopping even driving hurts.

Brief Answer:
Could be slipped disc

Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel ,Orthopedic Surgeon.

I have read the history and description of pain. Going by the fact that your pain increases on walking with burning and soreness in the foot , My diagnosis would be a slipped disc most likely L5-S1.

I suggest a MRI of the lower back, pain killers , muscle relaxants and a combination of pregalin + methycobalamin tabs. Physiotherapy would also help- like IFT and Spinal Extension exercises( to be taught by a physiotherapist).

Thanks for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.

I was diagnosed with having a small stroke. MRI confirmed a CT scan results from an ER visit July 2013. I am a 47 female, was diagnosed with Lupus sle as well as rheumatoid arthritis last march I do take methotrexate injections once a week, plaquenil, folic acid, iron, magnesium, and baby aspirin. I do not see my neurologist until mid May, and I know I have enough on my unhealthy plate so to speak as it is ...I have had these symptoms since last Jan 2012 they have come and gone over periods of time. My Dr will def remember us discussing this because Ive asked him to clarify what to look for in regards stroke symptoms. Is it the entire one side of body ? or a part of one side whether it s a limb, limbs weakness? , or side of face, weakness pins needles numbness ? Because I ve felt this for quite sometime but I have to say it s constant now. I feel pins, needles and numbness around left eye, hairline toy cheekbone for days at a time and now the past few weeks it s been constant! What symptoms that are newest to me are this hear sensation that radiates across my scalp. Just keeps going back and forth. .and when it s all over after about two days literally it has left me with a migraine. Lastly, I ve never experienced this hip & leg pain also on right side along with these spasms that awakens me in the middle of the night where I can t even move or stretch out my leg to get up to go to the bathroom which is why I am trying to get up in the first place. Some new symptoms and some old but def much longer time periods I feel them then last year. I can best describe the leg pain in the middle of night as excruciating stabbing deep muscle pain along with these pins, needles, & chills in my legs. My question is could something else be going on ? Because I know my lupus dr will say these aren t lupus symptoms!

I was in a car accident 1 year ago with whiplash injuries and also swooshing sounds in left ear. The neck stuff appears to be better but the noise I hear in my ear happens currently when I change positions or move my head or jaw one way. The ENT did ct and MRI and mra and found nothing wrong. I did find out I have a floppy eardrum. Why do I have this pulsatile tinnitus? Could it be coming from my neck still? I read about diet soda? Can the caffeine or aspartame cause this?
