    Foot & Ankle Pain
    My husband ( 56 yrs. Old ) fell about 2 yrs. Ago and injured his left foot and ankle he went to the doctors, she gave him a coritsone injection the shot gave him some relief for a little while she also fit him for inserts to put in shoes but they caused him to have more pain. It's 2 yrs. Later and he is still having problems and pain, he has burning and tingling in the bottom of his foot the tingling is constant and he has a steady pain in the middle of the bottom of the foot, the burning comes when he walks on it ( about the length of a supermarket ) the more he walks the more it burns he has pain on the left side of his ankle that radiates along the left side of his foot there is discoloration on the left side of the ankle ( looks like it's burised ) when he walks for a long time he said it feels like his toes are being pulled up. The MRI report said 1st MPT minimal osteoarthritis withdistal 1st metatarsal head cyst it also said there is an artifact which may be due to prior surgery, he hasn't had any surgery.Could you please give me your opinoin of what could be wrong with his foot, any help would greatly appreicated.

    It seems like your husband has problems with circulation of blood in the extremities. It happens in smokers, and diabetics and people who have high cholesterol or a heart condition. The fall appears to be a coincidence. If that were the cause it should pain even at rest. Again an MRI will not show the status of circulation - you should get an ultrasound/doppler test.
    That is all I can assume as I do not have any more details.
    PS the bruising /discolouration sounds a bit ominous. Have that checked please.

    The top of my feet from ankle to toe started to burn last night when I got up to get ready for bed. It still burns this morning.
