about spurs

Posted by Nicole James on 11/10/03 at 11:48 (136953)

My mom been having trouble with her foot latley. Her doctor said that she have spurs in her left foot. So my question to you do spurs make your foot get darker. My mother leg and foot is swelling up. She work in a warehouse and have to wear steal toe shoes too. Does that make it worst? Her standing on her foot all day.

Hi Nicole,

I think your mom should get a second opinion right away. To my knowledge (and anyone else here can correct me if I'm wrong) but heel spurs do not result in leg swelling or darkening of the foot! Please get her to a different doctor and make sure the diagnosis is accurate.

Good luck,

Aly
