Mystery metatarsals.

For the past few months, when I wake up in the morning (or get up in the middle of the night), I experience pain between/around my 4th and 5th metatarsals when I put any weight on that foot--more on the side and top than the sole (it is not plantar fasciitis). Within 5-10 minutes, it stops and doesn't hurt at all for the rest of the day. My GP, orthopedist and physical therapist are stumped. Any ideas? [more inside]

Dr. House, you're wanted in podiatry.

I'm having a foot flexibility problem that I can't figure out. YANMD, unless you are, hey doc! It's the end of a long string of problems that I got over, but this last thing is hanging on, and i'm not sure how it is related to past problems (achilles tendonitis and some arch issues in that foot).

Broken Metatarsals in Dogs 101

Fractured metatarsals in dogs. My dog has broken three metatarsals in one hind paw - the fractures are straight across in the same line. We've been advised to see an orthopedic vet to discuss surgery vs. splinting. What should we know going into this meeting? Can you suggest good questions to ask? Can this kind of injury be caused by stress, i.e. jumping on a hard surface? [more inside]

new year's resolution fail

I went for a rather long, brisk walk yesterday after an extended period of holiday-season inactivity and didn't think to stretch first (stupid, I know). Now I've got lower leg pain along the front where the leg meets the ankle, and the balls of my feet are hurting. Can anyone recommend some stretches or something else that will make the pain go away for now? [more inside]

How to pwn a friend.

My friend agreed for me to full on tackle him... We are in the 10th grade, I outweigh him by probably 80lbs, and he said he would let me do it... Questions: can we get in trouble or suspended? Im will only be a few feet away, and he will have pillows, a helmet, and will land on some grass, can he (or I) get hurt? And finally, if one of us DOES get hurt, what will the injurys be?

Any hope out there?

About a decade ago, I stubbed my big toe so badly that I clearly broke it. My crappy University Health Services refused to x-ray it, insisting that it was just a normal stub. I have since had severe pain every step I take, I can't really bend it very well, it sits differently than the other toe, and I am incapable of wearing heels or doing various athletic activities that I am dying to do, or even wearing most flat shoes, or taking long walks. I fantasize about it being broken again and then set correctly, but I have no idea if this is something that is done. What do doctors tend to do in this kind of situation, so I have some idea before trying to arrange a way to see someone? [more inside]

Very painful corn on inside of little toe ..help

Broke my foot 2 years ago - seems like the gait has been altered and now my shoes don't fit as well and pressure started being put on my baby toe right on the inside between that toe and the adjacent one and a small corn has developed making every step excruciating. So I went to get one of those silicone inserts and it's helping somewhat. Also got new shoes. But now what? Will the corn disappear by itself? Is there anything that's not hyper-toxic that I can use on it to hasten the healing? I can't afford to go to a podiatrist right now - so anything that is suggested has to take this into consideration.

How to clean seriously smelly Birkenstocks?

I have many pairs of Birkenstocks, about 25 or so, and I can no longer wear some of my favourites due to their funky odour. I've tried using the Birkenstock brand footbed cleaner, and other mild detergents, but haven't had great success getting the funk out. Looking for suggestions for how to clean old smelly pairs, and also how to prevent the funk from settling into new pairs. Natural solutions preferred, please.
