What are the foot bones called

Common Questions and Answers about What are the foot bones called


1084398 tn?1277308410 I have had to compensate walking because I couldn't put my right foot down. The pressure was horrible. NOw my left foot hurts. What do I do if I can't walk? This scares the bageezes out of me. I'm only 36, I teach full time kindergarten and have a 3 & 5 year old. I can' t have anyone tell me to stay off my feet. Does anyone else have foot pain on the tops of their feet?
Avatar n tn I'm the podiatrist. She needs Xrays immediately. If the bones are broken and also are displaced, you do not want them to heal in the incorrect position. The healing will begin just a few days following the fracture. If broken bones are horribly displaced, they may never heal without surgery. In both cases (fracture and dislocation), there is the possibility of compromised circulation due to stretching or pinching off of the blood vessels in the injury area.
Avatar n tn by putting together the information in the posts I read this morning on Lipo-Flavonid and info about what the product does, why the specific ingredients are in the product, and the product success rate, together with a post on this thread in 2007, by a female neurology teacher(I think that's what she said she was..it's a long post so it will be easy to find if you'd like to read it). Also, her husband is a Dr. and he aided her in trying to find a cure.
Avatar f tn Are you certain there isn't a break in a bone in there somewhere? There are so many tiny bones in your foot. It took the drs 5 months to find the break in my foot. (This was many years ago. Ended up being a sesamoid bone on the bottom of my foot.) I'm telling you this because those breaks can be hard to find. Or it could be some type of nerve damage. I don't know. My best advice is to see an orthopedic doctor.
233616 tn?1312790796 but not to be setting my own bones!!!!! finally I called a smaller practice, and they saw me, re-xrayed the foot to make sure some healing was occuring (3 weeks after the break...but hey...it is nice to know....)and finally gave me a sandal to wear that protects the foot....so I wouldn't hurt it again... which had happened twice more already (once thanks to hubby throwing my shower chair in my midnight path again....once just from stepping on a blanket) sheezh.......
Avatar n tn After removing the callus I noticed a hole in the bottom of my foot that bled (not caused by me removing the callus too deep) I had severe pain in my little toe that seemed to be attached to this hole in my foot. For years the callus would grown and there would always be a little speck of blood underneath. I still have pain in this area when ever I stand. Could this be an exposed nerve? What can I do about it?
Avatar m tn the doc told me that it was over pronation due to wearing non-arched pt shoes for a year.Also he diagnosed that my arch muscles in the right foot are weak and although I don't have a flat foot he suggested doing some exercises to improve my foot arch.So hopefully I will improve my arch and start living the dream from next year. It was great talking with you guys thanks for your suggestions. Positron out....
Avatar n tn I tried standing on it with pressure, rubbing it, flexing it. The pain was unberable. I was about to wake my husband to take me to the the hospital when the pain suddenly started to become milder. This happened several more times during the night. Then several nights in a row. Then it started happening to my other foot. NOW it is happening to both of my hands an part of my right arm, and has happened to the left side of my neck.

428506 tn?1296560999 I have also read that leg pain,especially below the knees, and foot pain are Bart related. The excruciating shin pain was a symptom noticed in soldiers in World War Ii who contracted trench fever, later determined to be bartonella quintana. More common with Lyme is bartonella henselae, formerly known as cat scratch fever and dismissed as minor and not requiring treatment. I tested positive for b.henselae, and I haven't had any leg or foot pain...
Avatar m tn My doctor doesnt think its gout, because its affecting the middle of my foot up towards my ankle.(more towards the right side of the middle of my foot) It has also climbed up to my ankle now and starting to get slight pain above my ankle. I have been staying off of it by using crutches - it was to the point I couldnt walk or even put pressure on it. I can now barely walk on it and a little pressure doesnt hurt at all, but still is swollen.
Avatar f tn When tumors start inside the skeleton, such as in leg bones, ribs or arm bones, they are called bone tumors. Sometimes benign bone tumors clear up on their own and only require that we watch them carefully, checking your child once or twice a year. Be careful with the growth of the bone as sometimes it leads to fractures. Take care!
Avatar m tn After 5 months, alot of blood work, and hard work by my doctor the only thing that has turned up is an active thyroid. Hypothyroidism is what we "think" is the concern. It has been checked 3 times, and twice it was off. My doctor proscribed some medicine(Levothyroxine, lowest dose possible for now- .25 or 25) for 2 months. In 6 weeks we'll do blood work again and see if I still have the inner cold feeling.
469720 tn?1388149949 the rapid proliferation of these diseases virtually negates and medical benefit. In other words, we are treating the consequences, not the cause. It's like mopping up around an over flowing sink basin and forgetting to turn off the faucet Aside from uncommon genetic disorders, diet is by far the most important factor leading to the development of Diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension.
Avatar f tn You are an amazing success after 20 years! So much of what you said are my thoughts too. The first 3 months after the initial foot drop I refused to wear anything. Can you imagine with complete drop? dumb. Then I progressed to the Lift-Up strap. I've had many falls and fortunately have only broken one toe. I had to move on to the rigid, toe off AFO. I can't stand because I can't go up stairs or stand up from squatting on floor.
Avatar f tn I pulled almost all of my own teeth, myself, so I could afford false teeth. On the bottom of my foot, I once had this giant callous on the pad of my foot, below the middle toe. I determined, myself, to remove it at any cost, and so I dug, and dug, and dug. It had an enormous root! going clear to the bone. It is gone for good, now. I removed an unacceptable growth from near the corner of my nose, and I lanced a huge boil from my ear lobe.
566103 tn?1228389367 The tendon passes behind the medial malleolus of the ankle and attaches to a bone in the foot called the navicular bone. The posterior tibial tendon injuries appear to fall into 2 categories: traumatic and degenerative. Initially, in degenerative injuries, the posterior tibial tendon starts out with an area of inflammation, which then begins to degenerate. As it deteriorates, the tendon may begin to have microscopic tearing.
Avatar f tn My foot is cold to the touch, not warm, there is mild discoloration, more purple than red, I dont seems to have a fever, pain is mild but I get fatigued easily and have noticed that I have a mild headache most of the time. My concern are the holes, what are they and why are they there?
365931 tn?1198073762 It will start in the lower back and make its way around the right hip and down the right leg right to the foot. When it is real bad it is pins and needles feeling and a very throbbing pain. I have been to see a specialist who sent me for and MRI of which it showed I do have an extra disc and off of the 6th disc is an inch and a half by an inch and a half bone to the right which should not be there but my specialist does not think that this will be causing me a concern.
Avatar f tn I only scratch it for a second as it makes me feel ill and stop the minute I feel the lump. Does anyone have a clue what these lumps are? Also on the cat scan, there is a small focal lesion identified in the liver. The report says it is a 2mm well- defined hypodensity that is too small to characterize. The doctor has added an AFP tumor marker to the lab work which came back at 15.8. Is this to keep an eye on the lesion in the liver. Has anyone had this before?
Avatar n tn Hi Kris, Your description of your symptoms and trips to the doctors for tests and diagnosis are spot on to what i have endured. As your posts were since 2009, was wondering if you've had any breakthroughs you can share with me as i am desperate for a solution.
Avatar m tn Hi Larkin, I am sorry that you are also having pain in your foot on top of everything else. It is the on the same side that you have the knee problem? It amazing ow our body tries to compensate for pain or weakness in our body. Your foot pain could be due to a change in gait or a shifting of weight that your body has done to compensate for the pain and weakness in your back or knee. This occurs frequently and is done without you even thinking about it. It's like an unconscious adjustment.
Avatar n tn The therapy schedule was pretty intense (and time consuming) 3x week. The visit would involve the following (a lot of what I tell you cxould be done at home with modifications).
Avatar n tn Prior to surgery, the symptoms were severe back pain and numbness in the left leg and foot. The doctor said it could take up to a year to regain strength in the left leg and foot and for the numbness to disappear. After 12 weeks post surgery, she said she would give me a prescription for physical therapy. It has been a little over a month since surgery and in general I have been feeling well with most days having no back pain and only slight numbness in my left foot.
203342 tn?1328740807 Since then, he has developed the habit of meowing at the top of his lungs to be carried into the bedroom, and laid down on the foot of our bed with the ceiling fan on and "Moodscapes" music playing on the tv. SHEESH!
572651 tn?1333939396 We haven’t had a good old mystery diagnosis lately so I thought I would offer up my case history and get your feedback. This is not MS related because it is not a CN problem Pt history: MS Left foot Bunionectomy April 2012 Pulmonary embolism August 2012 Hammer toe – left foot developed 2013 Sx (that’s for symptoms and not sex)- Pain in left foot – got orthotics for relief from hammertoe – helped temporarily but then started to worsen over past six months.
Avatar n tn the first guy never mentioned the fact that I had 2 bones messed up in my foot. The Talis and Cuboid. from what the foot guy said that it looked like those two bones collided in my fall and "bruised" both of them. She and her OS showed me the MRI that showed it best that the one bone had chaged color meaning trauma/fracture about 50% of it and the other bone the talis had about 25% change in it.
386457 tn?1201906372 Hi, The mid-foot consists of 2 rows of bones; Proximally, the navicular and the cuboid articulate with the hind-foot through the Chopart joint. Distally, the 3 cuneiform bones and cuboid articulate with the metatarsals via the tarsometatarsal (Lisfranc) joint. Ligaments attach all but the 1st and 2nd metatarsal bases to the adjacent metatarsals. The strong Lisfranc ligament connects the 2nd metatarsal to the medial cuneiform.
Avatar n tn We didn't understand why surgery to the knee was causing such problems in the foot, but the Doctor just kind of acted like it was no big deal and kept saying it would go away. And a couple of years later it is better.
