Foot injuries from flip flops

Common Questions and Answers about Foot injuries from flip flops


Avatar f tn I have NO feeling in either set of toes, but can move my left foot. my right foot is basically useless except for the ability to move it from side to side. Do you think I would be a candidate for the tendon surgery? What doctor would I talk to about it? Neurologist?Physical Therapy?Orthopedist?Famly? Sorry for all the questions, I am just new to this all.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I'm 21 and have experienced swelling in my right foot for the last 2 1/2 years. For me, it was following a few very painful injuries on the foot (girl trod on me with heels etc) and an intensive ballet show. I have seen orthopaedic doctors, physios, had MRIs etc etc. Eventually I saw a vascular surgeon this year and he thought it was lymphedema due to the trauma and prescribed me compression stockings to wear every day.
Avatar n tn My girlfriend was walking in flip flops the other day and not paying attention (damn iPhones!). Some guy, who didn't look homeless according to her, was urinating against a wall and some urine splashed onto her foot. I didn't get into details as to how much, but assume it was a rebound splash. Obviously, she washed soon after, but is there any danger of her contracting a disease (STD or otherwise) from this incident?
Avatar m tn This will probably sound stupid. I was walking today in flip flops and i felt something underneath my sole of my foot on my flipflop. It didn't feel sore, just I could feel that it was there if that makes sense. I think it was a tiny shard of glass. I got back to my car and checked my foot and it looked fine. I didn't see any blood or anything. 1. What I wanted to know was whether HIV could be transmitted this way? 2.
Avatar m tn If I wear shoes and socks with no activity, feet get really sweaty and start getting warm. It does happen in flip flops too, just not as much. Been trying to keep up on washing my feet and applying anti fungal cream on feet and groin. With walking, usually doesn't happen. - my lower back still feels "different" than normal. Hopefully I didn't hurt it too bad. - ejaculations do not feel good. Urination has not ever been painfull. Bowel movements is a different story.
620923 tn?1452919248 Flip flops are the high heels that southern girls wear! Not only are they soft soled but they can be quite stylish as well. Plus, you can get them in every color in the rainbow, at some places for under $10. But to seriously answer this month's post, I can contribute this fact: not a day goes by that I don't trip walking up the steps. And every set of steps, anywhere, trips me. When I come down, I hold on to the railing really tightly.
973741 tn?1342346373 Again, your shoes could well be the biggest culprit. Steer clear of heels, slippers, flats, flip flops, shoes with little to no support=bad for your feet. Most think nothing of their feet and buy flashy and cute shoes and most of the time these shoes are not of good quality and have no good support. See a Podiatrist or a Foot and Ankle Specialist soon. Don't wait. First thing in the morning, stretch those feet before you begin your day.
390388 tn?1279639813 One of the main ways to control the spasms is to control the disease. I am not allowed to wear flip flops or any kind of sandle, I know it sounds strange, but giving your feet good support really does help, he had recomended Dr. Schouls? sorry cant spell worth a darn. He also recomended exersize, but he said the best way for that is swimming. It does not have the huge impact on your body that say walking or running does.
Avatar f tn Reaching maturity,the CP was quite manageable and apart from a limp from my dragging left foot on a shorter leg (approx 3cm shorter than right leg) I was able to accomplish most things and even became captain of our schools 2nd tennis team,swam ,rowed ,climbed trees etc but running was always a difficulty.At 53yrs I had a double heart bypass and from then on noticed a decline in my walking ability,feet turning in more,loss of balance and now I hold on to everything when I can.
Avatar m tn I'm so sorry for not being able to complete my responses, totally disrupted my train of thought, i'll do my best to get it back again and actually try to make everything come together... [btw congratulations, 20 yr history of sobriety is no small feet!
Avatar n tn I also have that annoying warm sensation that is in my right leg and it moves from my ankle and up about 4inches and seems to be very frequent. I too thought it was a little heater under the seat of my car that was warming my leg-but the heat was not on. Also, the balls of my feet are burning along with this sensation. I need to know what this is?
Avatar n tn Thank you for the response mariop. So far the ablation has been successful which I am extremely thankful for! Was your ablation successful? Did your doctor give you an explanation as to why your heart rate and blood pressure became elevated? I bet that was frightening to go through. I'm sure you are right about my heart just needing more time to heal. I just assumed that 4 weeks post-op would have been plenty of time.
Avatar n tn I have gone down hill in the past week. My autonomic NS has been acting up also. I go from constipation to diarrhea on and off. I am trying to get in to a new neurologist at Mass General Hospital. They said hopefully before Christmas. I hope to not get any more weak before then. I did go to a neurologist last Friday who said I have polyneuropathy. I have started to go much further down hill though. I have read all the posts here and feel for all of you.
Avatar f tn that was the start of constant pain ,heart palpitations,flip-flops ,burning blood sensations in feet and hands,numbness with hands forearms and upper legs..wicked heart burn and just feeling like death most of the time.its been a year and i feel worse now than ever..doctors don't listen they seem in a hurry to get you in and out to make that big dollar..going to energy is another night mare i could go on and on but ..
Avatar f tn This has resulted in a 100% improvement in the pain and feverish feeling emanating from THAT tooth, but I still have an strange irritating sensation emanating from the implant that extends to the cheek, nostril, and eye above the implant. I have a feeling the implant is the cause of the mouth trouble and wondering if it is the cause of my neurological symptoms as well. My physical activity has been reduced to a minimum compared to the level of physical activity previous to the surgery.
