Customer Question

I am experiencing pain on the bottom of my foot again, this time it's my left foot, a vein seems to swell & bulge & I have to ice it to stop the swelling, then a bruise is left for days afterwards. Less than a week ago it was my right foot.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I have an appt to see a specialist on Monday May 16, 2016 because of my chronic constipation, could this be related?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Wrong, my husband has that, nothing like his symptoms, could it be a blood clog or colon problem disease?

I'm aware of gout & plantar fascist
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 7 months ago.
Fascitis presents with different symptoms , so not necessary as your husband has issue you might be the same .So clot is less likely .Regards .

I can walk with no pain, I have a bulging vein, placing ice pack stops swelling & pain, only a bruise is left for a few days

I called the hospital & talked to a nurse, she said I needed to see my doctor tomorrow or come in to be seen by the ER doctor if I was concerned that it couldn't wait
