ankle/top of foot pain
Dear Dr. Abrams, I am a 26 year old female who for the last 2 years has had persistant foot and ankle pain.
I have seen the podiatrist and he tells me he can’t find anything wrong.
I’ve had orthodics which haven’t help because he said I have a high arch this didn’t help allievate the pain.
My problem seems to be that when I said on my feet consistently (such as to cook dinner) my feet begin to hurt so bad that I have to sit in a bar stool to finish cooking.
At this present time I am dealing with extreme ankle pain on my right foot.
My ankle feels slightly swollen and is tender to the touch.
I haven’t twisted it so I know that can’t be the problem.
I have taken to wearing nursing shoes as they seem to help allievate some of the pain.
Do you have any recommendations or suggestions for what may be causing this?
