Did you twist it Sonja?

Any swelling or bruising?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No didn't twist it and no swelling or brushing at all

Is it sore to press on there?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
A little in the fatty part. When I walk it feel like I am pulling something kind of. Not every time I walk but off and on
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

OK. Then it has to be a bout of tendonitis--tendon inflammation--and that can happen without any trauma or twisting

Nothing too serious--just rest the foot as much as possible and you can apply topical capsaicin or Biofreeze cream

Okay I will do that after I am done cooking.
Thank you I will check back in the morning if that's okay I will leave this open for now. Thank you

Hi doctor the pain Is still in my right ankle not as bad but I have tried to stay off of it.
I just received a phone call from my doctors office saying I need to come I. Talk about the results of the two MRIs I just had of my head and neck, I told the nurse I still have a spine one that need to be done on Friday should I wait to get that done she said no the doctors doesn't want to wait for that test he wants to talk to you tomorrow. So now it has me scared not knowing.

Of course I have no idea what might have been on the MRI Sonja but just because he wants to talk to you doesn't mean it's anything serious
