Customer Question

The last three nights when I get up from bed I cannot put weight on my left foot without pain - if I try and move my foot, like stretching it out to point my toes it's really painful. I am 66.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: it only hurts when I put weight on it or try and stretch my foot (ie point toes) - it only started three days ago. It started hurting climbing stairs
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I suffer from high blood pressure which is well regulated at the moment
