Customer Question
Developed recent foot...

Developed recent foot pain under my big toe. Thought I had a rock in my shoe. Took shoes off, and nothing there, but pain persists in the ball of my big right toe.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Just started this morning, but continues till now after 2 pm. Walking on it is painful, but it does not seem to be in the joint, more in the soft tissue. Like something was in it. No puncture...no wound...no redness...Just aggravating pain.

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

I have a weak heart, and diabetes (controlled). Heart has 5 stents.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
