Customer Question
Curious about these brown...

Curious about these brown spots that are all over the top of one foot. also have swelling issues every day if Im not wearing closed in shoes.

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No injuries, the swelling has been for the past year. Id be at work time to go home and they were swollen up. No pain, but these brown spots I thought at first were freckles...but only one foot?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I do have severe degenerative scoliosis, had a spinal fusion done in 2009, and this year my right sacrum joint fused. I take pain meds every day of my life. My spine has a 9 1/2" titanium rod in it. Also have high blood pressure.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
