My husband has been complaining and now has gotten to where he can not walk on his feet the biggest problem is the back bone of his ankle he says hurts . He researched his symptoms and his leg and foot are two different temps he has been running fever the last couple days he does have some slight discoloration in his foot and ankle area
He currently is 380lbs high blood pressure , gout ,
Hello from JA
he needs to go to the ER
This can be
cellulitis [very dangerous]
plantar fasciitis.
All of these would need the correct treatment.
Cellulitis is an infection that can spread.
Acute gout would need adjustment of medications.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
