I have pain in the center of my foot. any treatment for this
I have pain in the center of my foot. it will not hurt when i press it. it will pain only when walking and standing. the doc injected steroid also into my foot to bring down the pain. heat therapy , ice therapy and even IR therapy also over the pain is still there. they are telling to put a night splint. it is costly and mu insurance will not pay for the splint. how do I proceed now. Is there any alternative to the splint devise
My mother also used to get severe pain in her feet. We saw many docotrs they used to give painkillers, the pain used to be less till she take tablets and the pain used to come back. One doctor gave her steroid injection to her feet, fromt that time her pain is decreased

your prob. is already diagnosed as a plantar fasciitis
which occurs due to the shortening of fascia.
first of all u hv to change ur foot wear , and then go for vigrous stretches followed by taping of the fascia....... and then u hv to use a cushion heel in ur shoe to provide the optimum effect.
for taping u hv to meet a physio who is expert in taping .
I have heel pain, especially to pressure but also with inversion of my foot. It is fairly intense and sometimes has a burning sensation. My mid arch area feels like there is a thick ban crossing over the arch when I step on it. I have to dorsi flex my feet before I ambulate to allow me to be able to tolerate pressure on my heel. Some background: I have seen a podiatrist in the past for a callous in the center of my heel. He would have to file it and dig out some thick callous tissue which would give me almost immediate relief, however, the last time (about 6 months ago) it wasn t as effective. The podiatrist said the callous develops because I do not have enough of a fat pad on my heel. The my current issue seems to have begun after the last callous care by the podiatrist and steadily has gotten worse. My shoes are high quality but I probably have not changed the heel cushion as frequently as I should. Thank you.
I play ice hockey. This morning I got hit with a fairly hard shot to the inside of my left in the center (where your toes connect to that large bone in the middle). It hurt a lot at the time, but after some obscenities and carrying on I resumed play. Now, as the day has gone on, I have developed immense pain just on the other side of that large bone on the outside of my foot. Pain is so severe that I can t point my toe all the way without it being a 10 on pain scale. Also can t rotate my foot so the sole of my foot points toward the right more than a couple degrees, also with a 10. Why would a blow to the inside of my foot cause so much pain on the outside, just on the other side of that bone? Did things get misaligned? Could it be a break?
I woke up with a painful blister on the bottom of my foot. It felt like I was walking on a rock. I poked it with a needle and clear fluid drained from it. I ve done this before with blisters and they went away after that without a problem. I put triple antibiotic and a special medicated blister band aid.. Now it is still painful and swollen and I squeezed it. There s a large white circle underneath my skin. More clear fluid came out but also a chunk of tissue or skin and now there s a hole in the center of the white circle. What could this be? How should I treat it?
My sister had a bad fall about a year ago, injured the top of her leg. About six months ago she had a cortisone injectin. Now she still has pain, a constant ache and a deep indentation at the cortisone injection site. Indentation is very noticeable, about 1 deep and 4 long. What could this be?
I cut my pinky with a knife while cooking. Did not go to get stitches right away but later saw a doctor who prescribed antibiotics and referred me to a hand doctor. Saw her yesterday and she had a splint put on my finger which I cannot remove for 6 weeks. However, she wants me to have an MRI to rule out an internal infection as she saw something on the x-ray. I will be going to get the MRI in a couple of days. Can they take an MRI with the metal splint in place?
Also, my finger hurts since I got the splint on. Is that to be expected?
