Both Feet have Numbess after a Fall

0

Hia week ago a fell…first I twisted my right ankle and down I went…letting myself fall so I would not break my ankle…but when I feel I landed on my left foot in such a way that I lifted up my big toe nail (ouch) ok…now I have a little numbness in both feet..
Is it possible I did something to both feet in that one fall…and if so..what the heck do I do?
Thank you in advance.Kae

Habit of always tiptoeing barefoot and in high heels

0

Dear Sir,I am a mother in Thiruvananthapuram, India, and may I please to ask you a few questions about the walking habits of my daughter Deepti, now sixteen years old and in higher secondary school.For around three years, Deepti has taken to walking in high-heeled sandals. They don’t seem too bad (heels one inch higher than toes?), and they look comfortable and pretty enough, so I let her wear them to school everyday, under the condition that she take them off and go barefoot in the classroom and during breaks (please remember that we’re in India this is perfectly normal here).
The problem is that her feet seem to have taken the shape of high heels, and even when she’s walking barefoot, she almost always tiptoes on demi-pointe, that is, she walks on her toes and the balls of her feet. Her heels never touch the ground when walking, even barefoot.And even when she’s not walking, her feet are still tilted. When they’re flat on the floor, her toes are tilted upwards, and when she’s sitting on her chair, she tilts her feet on the legs of the chair.
I asked her about her tiptoe / demi-pointe walking habit, and she said that she doesn’t feel comfortable unless her heel is much higher than her toes, even when walking barefoot. She also said that the way she walks doesn’t make her feet sore because she’s used to it.
I don’t think this is good for her, because this isn’t the way feet are supposed to walk or the way feet are supposed to be shaped. I thought the high-heeled sandals would be all right as long as she took them off, but going barefoot now doesn’t help either, because she always tiptoes on bare feet without any support for her heels, so maybe that’s even worse for her now.And then, her foot muscles and calf muscles sometimes cramp, I think, because of all the pressure she applies to the balls and toes of her feet and the tension in her muscles when walking as she does.Anyway, I would like to know your imput on this matter. I really don’t think her walking pattern is healthy at all and I would like you to confirm my opinions. Do you think the cramps are associated with such a tiptoe walking style? Are there any long-term problems or disorders associated with the tiptoe walking style?
I think I am prepared to let her continue wearing the high-heeled sandals, because I don’t think walking in them is the problem, but rather, the way she tiptoes all the time on bare feet is the problem. So, I have begun to monitor her walking pattern closely and remind her to walk normally, with her heels touching the ground. What is your opinion here?So, could you please tell me if you agree that Deepti’s tiptoe walking style is bad for her feet? And do you think I’m doing to the right thing by letting her wear the high-heeled sandals to school but insisting that she take them off and walk normally barefoot (with her soles touching the ground) in the classroom, during breaks, and at home?
Thank you very much!Yours,Saaya

toes and heel

0

Mostly on my right foot, my toes go numb when I’m at work, i work 12 hour shifts on my feet, wearing steel toe shoes. After about 6 hours, my heel is in pain. This also happens sometimes when I am not at work, but not as often. I don’t think its my shoes(steeltoe), because on my days off I wear other types. What could be causing this, a Piched nerve maybe?

Heel pain

0

16 months ago I ruptured the right achilles tendon.Non-surical repair of complete rupture.
It was in a boot brace for 2 months.
The tendon is 3/8 inches longer which causees a limp, but the real problem is the bottom of the heel, the left half is partially numb but has a lot of pain.
What can be done for the heel?

Pulled ligament?

Hi, Thanks for taking my question.
I am 61 and work out and relatively fit.
I was in a fun competition with 30 something’s and I jumped up from a sitting position and ran for the finish line. After running about 10 feet there was a loud pop in my right leg – seeming to come from where my sensoredocks connect to my upper leg. (Don’t know what muscle this is.) It has been a month and I am doing well but there is still a pulling when I walk. (slight pain) I am working out and doing Pilates but am very careful and don’t do anything to put a strain on it. Can you identify what happened and how I can further heal it?Thank you,Sue Brown

Protruding bone near ankle

0

For years a bone formation above my arch has progressively gotten worse on both of my feet. When I run on uneven surfaces and experience any instability while running, the bone becomes painful but not debilitating. I am somewhat bow-legged and wear out the outside of my running shoes in 100 miles. Could this be contributing to my problem? Any suggestions?

Shattered broken ring finger on right hand.

0

I severly broke the ring finger on my right hand. The doctor said it might be better not to do surgery due to the severity of the break and we would try splinting 1st. It has been eight weeks now and I am really pressed for time to go to therapy so I haven’t been. The doctor said I could do this myself. I have been doing epsom salt soaks in warm water, stretching the tendons by gently pressing my fingers on a hard surface to stretch them out and trying to make a full fist although I can’t make a full fist. I do all these things daily. Am I doing the right things? What exactly should I be doing as far as exercises for restoration of finger/grip function? The knuckle on the middle finger next to the broken one has swelling on the right side of the knuckle that I am worried about. Could this be arthritis? Sprain? Should I also be using ice for swelling?
