Foot stress response

Common Questions and Answers about Foot stress response


1558461 tn?1295396201 Pain in one joint causes a change in the way you stand and walk, even if it's something subtle you don't notice or are conscious of. This causes increased stress on the next joint up the line, then the next, etc. etc. What seems to be arthritis "spreading" could simply be the muscles and ligaments of those stressed joints yelling in protest. Or causing other bones to rub together differently and thus cause joint inflammation. Have you been seen for the chronic pain in your toe?
Avatar n tn and said it may be a cuboid stress fracture. At the doc's suggestion I will go for a 3-phase bone scan of the foot ... is that like an MRI? If I do have this cuboid thing ... what happens next? I appreciate your response, Thanks.
Avatar f tn OK---thanks!
Avatar n tn Sometimes tingling in your foot could just be that your foot fell asleep. Walking is good exercise, so keep walking. Take care of your feet--keep them clean, toenails trimmed (but not too short) and free of cuts and blisters--that sort of thing. When you visit the endocronologist discuss your fears and concerns--write them down to remember-keep a journal or something like that, so when you visit the doctor you don't forget.
Avatar n tn to my knowledge, foot pain is not generally a symptom of it most likely is anxiety. I strongly reccomend therapy. Also if your test was negative at 6 weeks, you have nothing to worry about.
Avatar f tn The effects of diabetes can be an autonomic neuropathy and increased blood flow to the foot leading to demineralization of the bones in the foot and their weakening. Therefore, a multiple factors can play an integrated role in foot drop in diabetics. You will need to be checked for metabolic causes with tests like HbA1c, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C reactive protein, creatinine and blood urea and nitrogen, protein electrophoresis and B12 levels.
96108 tn?1197694930 I requested some time off work to relieve some stress for awhile, get my symptoms under control and myself back on track. When asked how long i thought. I said 1-month. He told me that he thought that was too long. He prescribed me a higher dose of Xanax/more often, Granted me Stress leave for a month off. He warned me by taking the time off, not only would everyone at work know I was under Psychriatric care, It would permanently be in my file and depending how my company is about that stuff.
Avatar m tn About a year ago I had intense pain in my left foot. After seeing a podiatrist and having a bone scan it was determined that I had a stress fracture in my cuboid bone. During that time I was in the Army and had already been diagnosed with plantar fascistis, heel spur, bone spur in my ankle, and possible osteoarthritis in my midfoot. The doctor said that I could just wear a boot for 3 weeks and then it would be fine.
1168317 tn?1330266437 i also have developed foot drop on my left foot. could this be caused by a leision ? i had an mri 18 months ago and had two white spots and was told it was not conclusive enough for a dx and to see how my symtoms progressed .
Avatar n tn For the past 2 days, I've had this constant buzzing sensation in my left foot. It comes and goes every 6 seconds. However, when I walk, and when I do other activities that require a lot of attention, the sensation disappears. I seem to be getting different sensations, all paresthesia, that come and go every couple of weeks. During these periods, I also get anxious, so I'm not sure if its anxiety or the paresthesia that's the cause. What could this be?
429326 tn?1282331954 I took my father with me, after she explained the mri, and reassured me the 2 syrinx in my spine was not causing symptoms, my father chimes in about STRESS, oh yes she says stress can cause these symptoms and depression can too, and how I should talk to my pcp about antidepressants.....I could have choked him for saying that...
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone out there has had a positive exercise stress test and a negative stress echo test. My cardiologist said since my stress echo was negative there is a low probability of me having heart disease. I have been have chest pain with left arm and jaw discomfort on and off for 1 1/2 weeks. I am a non smoker, no high blood pressures, no diabetes, and good cholesterol. I am a 43 year old female. My father had his first heart attack at 50 and died at 60 so I have a family history.
988870 tn?1284810404 She also mentioned that the stress I'm going thru at home-Worrying about my Mother's ill health and My Dad's Alzheimers disease could well be contributing to this latest trouble with the dysautomia. Does anyone else have increased problems with their dysautomia when they are under a lot of stress? I thought that it was because I was going thru' menopause and due to the hormonal changes. I mentioned this to her and she said the two problems together would make it even worse.
Avatar n tn anxiety, sleep deprivation, hypervigilance, suspiciousness, paranoia, and persecutory fears (altered perception of reality, and aggressive or homicidal in response to imagined persecution; toxic paranoid psychosis). Other high-dose, long-term effects: sexual dysfunction, interpersonal conflicts (resulting from sense of isolation/paranoia), severe depressive conditions, dysphoria, and bizarre and violent psychotic disorders (days-weeks) after drug. Acute toxic dose: ~1-2 mgs/kg...
1113012 tn?1258592831 I started gaining weight when I broke my foot and started taking Methadone. I started retaining fluid also. I gained 35 lbs. in 6 mos. I had pitted edema in my legs and feet and I could really tell in my upper stomach. Test were run, no prognosis, just gave me lasix. That weight stayed with me and the fluid has come and gone, better with my feet propped. Now this year, in the past month and a half, I have gained an excess amount of fluid. I went from 190 to 22? with about 2-3 weeks.
1017324 tn?1390940045 Hi! Foot pain on the top of the foot could be due to stress or hairline fracture of a metatarsal bone. Another possibility is tendonitis or inflammation of a tendon. Over-straining the foot as in running could be the cause. Foot pain can also be due to arthritis. Faulty foot wear is another cause: the top portion of the foot could be rubbing against the shoes. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn It generally forms in response to pressure, rubbing, or stress that continues over a long period of time. Bone spur is just extra bone. It’s usually smooth, but it can cause wear and tear or pain if it presses or rubs on other bones or soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, or nerves. Treatment directed at symptoms could include rest, ice, stretching, and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen.
Avatar f tn however a yr ago i went to get a pedicure and next day noticed i was getting a ringworm on my foot, i was able to get rid of it with topical ointments but there was some more little ones still popping up on my skin. I went to the doctors and got grifulvin pills, 10 days into taking them i had peripheral neuropathy symptoms went to the doctors and i was told to stop taking them so i stopped after taking them for 14 days.
Avatar n tn So I'm stuck in a recurring loop of self-debate on whether most of these things are caused by a stress response gone bizarre, or represent some other neurological event that is its own syndrome.
Avatar n tn Right before the memorial day holiday I got up from the desk in our home office and noticed my left foot was really hurting me. I was limping around as I got the kids to bed and thought perhaps when I was sitting at the desk that maybe I overstretched the foot and it needed to just calm down. By 4AM the next morning I made the decision to go to the ER as it was hurting that bad. Because I had not recalled falling or tripping, no xray was done and I was told I had plantar fascitis (sp?).
Avatar f tn It sounds like you may have a stress fracture. I would get repeat foot x-rays. Sometimes, stress fractures don't show up until several weeks later. It is very difficult to strain a muscle on the top of the foot to cause so much swelling and the "bump" feeling.
Avatar n tn A co-worker recently had a stress fracture. A doctor at work said I should see a neurologist about the difference in my legs. Can anyone enlighten me or give me some suggestions. I am direct care at a state psych hospital.
Avatar m tn These symptoms gradually evolved into other symptoms. For teh last 6 months, I have had chronic foot and hand pain. Almost as if my hand and feet are arthritic? The soles of my feet hurt daily despite low levels of activity. Also, when I left I get real sore in my hands frmo lifting weights. I have also had hand weakness, for example one day I could not open a peanut butter jaw. Aside from the chronic hand and foot pain, the other main disturbing symptom is my shaky hands.
Avatar m tn Hello, Well, for starters, thank you for taking the time to read my posting. A few weeks ago I noticed that the soles of my feet were dry & that the skin was cracking (as if the bare foot had been dragged across a rough surface...which was not the case). I bought moisturizer so as to soften the skin, yet the rough skin exterior persisted. Then came the itching & burning sensation (feet).
182884 tn?1259316506 told by my doctor a few days later, had all the classic symptoms and should have gone. Had upcomming foot surgery for fusion, and saw my regular dr. for a presurgical clearance and after hearing about my heart pain episode, she referred me for further testing. She drew my blood for lipid panel, as I have had high blood pressure and high cholesteral for several years, take Lipitor 20 mg day already. My dr. called me that night to give me further orders and the results of my cholesteral.
Avatar n tn Also noticed strange reflex- hit my left forearm muscle, fourth toe on left foot would jerk (still does). Hyperreflexia. Tested for ANA (1:40), STDs, B12, do have high mercury (although many chelation sessions haven't helped), brain MRI, c-spine MRI, normal EMG/NCV, etc Several neurologists seen- all had different opinions (post-viral was just 1...
182884 tn?1259316506 Hi, I have been searching the post here on the forums, as well as the internet, and can not get a straight answer, so thought I would try posting again to see if I get a response. I have tryed talking to doctors, but everyone has a different opinion. I had a persantine Stress test with Cardiolyte about May 12th. I couldn't use the tread mill because of my back and two recent foot surgeries, and my dr. thought it was best for the Persantine Stress test.
168348 tn?1379360675 Sorry I'm late, I had a bad headache from that bartending thing I did here Friday night. The problem with waiting for test results and of seeing levels fluctuate is that -just as you say- you have a confusion of feelings and information which would be hard to tease out even if much of the news was good. No news is good news? I don't THINK so, not in this case, anyway. That said, I may be able to focus on two things here that are working against you, and which you can fix.
3060903 tn?1398568723 When stressors throw your nervous system out of balance, relaxation techniques can bring it back into a balanced state by producing the relaxation response, a state of deep calmness that is the polar opposite of the stress response. When stress overwhelms your nervous system your body is flooded with chemicals that prepare you for “fight or flight”.
Avatar f tn thanks for your response. btw, that 7 foot 7 is a typo. I'm only 5 foot 7.
