Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

Consulting with an orthopedist and performing an MRI of the foot is necessary. Other tests to consider would be: nerve conduction studies to investigate for a pinched nerve and inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
