Tingling Toes and Bruised foot

Posted by ShelleyG on 1/25/01 at 15:28 (037342)

Dr. Zuckerman,

I've had a soreness on the ball of my right foot since May 2000. It feels like a bruise. I've had it x-rayed and nothing showed up.

Also, sometimes I experience tingling in my toes.

The physical examination is very important to determine if you have a plantar neuroma, bursitis, tendonitis, and or capsulitis. These are all part of or near the area that you are describing. At this time an mri could be necessary. What type of treatments have you have and what were the outcomes?

I have had no treatments. Just the x-ray for my foot. What is a plantar neuroma and what is capsulitis?
