My turn for advice

I'm getting very frustrated. Around mile 22 of my marathon on Oct. 9, my right foot started to hurt. Every day since then it has progressively gotten worse. Now it is swollen, I have a bruised nail bed and I can't wiggle my toes. I've had two xrays and a bone scan and nothing is showing up. I just made an appt with an orthopedic guy and the soonest I can get in is Monday. He doesn't even specialize in feet--the podiatrist has a 6-week waiting list. Has anybody ever had a similar problem, and if so, what was the cause? I just want to run again...and it'd be nice to walk, too.

Re: My turn for advice

A guy I new had developed a clot in his upper leg and his foot was doing the same thing. he let it go for so long that now it is going to be a major surgery and he is now scared to do it... but his foot is not the only thing that is swollen anymore basically the doctors said his leg is starting to fill up with blood. I dont know if it is the same for you but i thought i would share anyways.

I went to a specialty store to make sure I had the right size. Actually, I ran (awkwardly) a little last Saturday despite the pain. After a couple miles I felt a stabbing pain and then didn't notice the bruising until the next morning.

Re: My turn for advice

on a lighter note my fiance broke her ankle a while back and went to the docter and they never found anything but it was really black and blue and horribly painful for her and after awhile she went back cause the pain was still so bad and she went to another docter and they finally found a small fracture that everyone else missed. but also you could have just severly bruised it some how or it is broken and noone has found the break yet?

sorry if i am absolutly no help at all

Re: My turn for advice

I'm gonna go with spy on this one. It sounds to me like you have a clot somewhere in your leg.
From what I've been told (and what has happened to me when breaking my ankle and foot) your entire foot will discolor and nails turn purplish. Plus, with a break you're not gonna be able to put much weight if any on it without shooting pains.
Bruising and swelling sounds more like something is draining, and maybe you still have an open internal bleed?

Re: My turn for advice

This is from my overly-fit, health nut freak of a friend:

First, by no means take these ideas as anything other than brainstorms from my experience as a bicycle racer.

1)Have your blood pressure and pulse taken at the ankle. Runners and cyclists tend to have different blood pressure readings in the legs than in their arms because of increased vascular fitness. The test for normal people is called something like Peripheral Circulation, and it is to better identify risk for heart attack. The change in blood pressure could affect your bodies ability to move the damage blood cells, thus the swelling.
2)Have you had any knee or hip problems in the past? Injuries can trickle down through compensation.
3)Have a fasting blood sugar test done. It could be a very mild form of Diabetes that would go unnoticed until high need for Glucose. Extremity swelling is a symptom of Diabetes.

My advice is don't mess around with a normal pediatrist or orthopedist. You need to find one specializing in sports medicine, or they are going to miss stuff. Just my personal experience. As a fit athlete, your symptoms and diagnosis are going to be a lot different than a normal "healthy" person.

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

I'll also add that with TB around, you probably shouldn't rule out some strange STD.

Thanks. I think I'll find out who the MU teams use and make an appt with that doc. The swelling is minor and localized and it's only one toe nail, so I really think it's either a ligament or maybe a dislocated metatarsal.

Thanks again!

Re: My turn for advice

I rolled my ankle/foot on Labor Day, I felt a pop as it happened. I was still able to walk and work but with a very noticable limp my season for mtn biking was ended that day, now that six weeks have passed I havent noticed any sharp pains as I did the first few weeks. I'm sure I should have gone to the doctors but never did. So I would suggest waiting six weeks and hoping for no long term damage, but thats just me

Re: My turn for advice

The doc would probably end up putting a white cast on it anyway, so it's a good thing you haven't gone.
