My feet are swollen after I came back from a trek. Its been 2 days since the trek and the swelling has not subsided.
I am 25 year old. From last 1 year suffering from pain over foot hill and cough muscle. Firstly I had tested uric acid. Then its result was 5. Bt after taken doctor advise it becomes normal. Bt that problem still suffered. After taken rest for long time while ready to step, it pain really hard. What should I do?
I got ankle twist while playing basketball ball. I consulted doctor two times. Doctor said its nothing. Ankle sprain. Now its fifth month. Swelling is there, and its much thicker type of swelling. Please help.
Lower abdomen, buttocks, total pelvic area, groin area remain extremely tight, waist sides remain tight partially due to anxiety and some physicians say due to neuropathy after being operated for gallstones 2 years back .This tightness reaches upto stomach. I have muscular dystrophy. A physiotherapist suggested me to have hot padding in these areas. Wud it help ease the tension.
Is there any treatment for gall stone in homeopathy. I have two stones of 7 mm each for last many years.
I have pain bottom of the feet and some time in lower legs. When I consultant the doctor they said it's due to flat feet .I suffered pain normally in right feet more when I stand and walk. So what should I have to do for pain management. And I do standing job that is making pain more worse.
Heel pain, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis
A common foot complaint is pain in the bottom of the heel. This is often referred to as heel spurs or plantar fasciitis. It commonly is painful the first few steps in the morning or after rest. It tends to get worse the longer one stands during the day. It is caused by subtle changes in foot structure that occurs over time. These changes result in the gradual flattening of the arch. As this occurs a thick ligament (the plantar fascia) that is attached to the bottom of the heel and fans out into the ball of the foot is stretched excessively. This ligament acts as a shock absorber while walking. As the foot flattens it stretches. If it stretches too much it gets inflamed and causes pain. Over time the pull of the ligament creates a spur on the heel bone. It is important to realize that it is not the spur that causes the pain and therefore the spur does not need to be removed in most cases. This condition may also cause generalized arch pain called plantar fasciitis. This is an inflammation of the plantar fascial ligament.
A common factor that contributes to this condition is tightness of the calf muscles. Women who wear high heels and people who walk for exercise will often develop this problem because of the tightness that results in the calf muscle as a result of these activities. A non-supportive shoe also contributes to this problem. Weight gain is another factor in developing heel pain.
Calf muscle stretching is very useful. The typical runners stretch by leaning into a wall is helpful. An alternative method of stretching is to stand approximately two feet from a wall. Facing the wall turn your feet inward so you are pigeon toed. Lean forward into the wall keeping your heels on the floor and the knees extended. Also keep your back straight and do not bend at the hips. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds and do the stretch ten times in a row. Do the stretching three times each day. Always stretch the calf muscles following any form of exercise.
Over the Counter Arch Supports
Wear a supportive sport or walking shoe. This can be supplemented with a good over the counter arch support.
Oral Anti-inflammatory Medications
Medications like Advil, Tylenol, or Aleve may be of some benefit. Always read the medications directions and warnings before use.
If the heel pain persists your foot doctor may suggest a cortisone injection, taping the foot to support the arch, night splints to stretch the calf muscles at night while you are sleeping or functional foot orthotics. On occasion surgery may be required to cure this condition. Orthotics should be tried before surgery and should be used following the surgical procedure.
