When should I seek medical treatment for foot pain?

When the pain begins to interfere with your activities of daily living or if you cannot perform your desired activities without pain, you should consider seeking medical attention. Indicators that you should seek medical care are if the area looks deformed, you have loss of function, change of sensation, a large amount of swelling with pain, prolonged change of skin or toenail color, the affected area becomes warmer than the surrounding areas, becomes exquisitely tender to the touch, or is causing you to move differently.

Comment from: agraham, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: October 09

Hey I have had this pain in my left foot surrounding my ankle for the last 4 weeks. Some days it could be mild pain and I can manage and then sometimes progresses to the worst. I have tried just about everything to get the pain to go away; wrapping it, soaking it, taking pills, ice, and propping my foot up; nothing seems to work. Some days I can rest up but others I can' because of work and school. My foot stays swollen, bruised, and now there is a knot showing up beside my ankle bone. Slowly the bruising is showing up on the other side of my foot. I don't really have a lot of money to go to the doctor.

I have pain under my left foot nearest my three toes. I have had multiple blood tests done which came back normal, MRIs, x-rays, test(s) which found no abnormality. I"ve seen a neurologist, podiatrist, chiropractor none of whom could treat my problem successfully. I"ve taken shots, anti-inflammatory pills, which are not providing pain relief. I don"t know what next step to take.
