For ShawnW: Foot Discoloration
« on: April 12, 2014, 02:14:23 PM »
Since I can't send pictures in PM I'm posting it here. I've been having some foot twitching lately that makes my pinky toe move. Along with some numbness/tingling at times. Now there's some outer foot discoloration. I've been afraid of *** and other neuro nasties but discoloration is a good sign that it's a local foot injury right? Could an injury cause the twitching?

Discoloration isn't a sign of ***, and it is indeed more indicative of injury.  Your photos have not been approved for posting as of yet.

Okay. For some reason I am unable to PM you back due to a 3 per hour limit. So you said it'll subside after football, problem is it won't be over for a couple of months. Which doesn't matter because I'm on my feet most days bussing tables anyhow. How can I treat this? The pain I can deal with, it's the twitches in the outer foot that are worrisome to me.

Ice, anti-inflammatories (if not allergic), elevation...would say rest but obviously that won't happen.  Not sure it will take care of the twitching or not.  But, it will decrease local inflammation.  Without resting the foot, it is likely to continue twitching.

Why should it continue twitching if the inflammation is addressed? Isn't the inflammation squeezing the nerve and causing misfires? another X factor. Could all of this be related to the tightness and mild pain deep in my left glute.

It can come from a number of places...but how have you addressed inflammation in a day?  Inflammation of an area can take weeks to clear up.  Not to mention you are so anxious that you would probably twitch without any localized trauma.

I'm not saying I've addressed it in a day, but you said twitching may continue even after inflammation has resolved, I was just wondering why.

For all the reasons I have mentioned numerous time.  As for the pic, yep thats bruising consistent with localized trauma.
