I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What could be the reason for inflamation and swelling in the feet and pain while walking ?

Quarter sized area on the topside of right foot with inflamation and slight tenderness/swelling. Putting pressure to try to walk causes extreme pain and pressure on foot and leg up to thigh area. I don t know what caused this, it just started about two weeks ago and has gotten worse in the last couple of days. Please help it you can.
