Seeking possible explanation for...

Seeking possible explanation for tender, raw feeling soles of the foot when I am rarely on my feet. Sometimes painful enough that walking is very uncomfortable. Age 85, height 5'1", weight 123#. Have pacemaker and electronic implant stimulation for spine. ***@******.***

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

Two weeks. Inexplicable genesis. Gentle massage beneficial.

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

Can't think of any contributory information.

This sounds like a severe case of plantar fasciitis--inflammation of the fascia/tendons in the soles of your feet

Topical over the counter capsaicin cream and oral ibuprofen can help for now

But you need to see your doctor about this for an exam and I would give you a cortisone injection in both feet to relieve your suffering

Please let me know if you need any more information

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
