Question: TOE PAIN


 Hippytrip - Fri May 18, 2007 8:00 am

I am a 24y/o female (nurse at that). The pain started back in November? In the second toe of my right foot, I thought at first my new shoes squeezed my toes together causing the soreness. So I never wore the shoes again. Soreness changed to redness & swelling which spread to my big toe & my 3 toe, then up my foot almost to my ankle. I went to the podiatrist did a round of ABX & a steroid Dose Pack, no DX. I went back several times, the Steroid relieved the pain and swelling for about 2 weeks, then it returned. Not spread all over my foot, just on my 3 toes. Since then I have developed A Swollen, red nodule on my great toe right about the middle of it. I have had 2 sets of X-Rays, an MRI, 2 CBC's & Uric Acid's, 1 ANA, CCP IGg, HLA b27, Rheumatodi Arthritis factor, Sed. Rate, & a C-Reactive Protein. EVERYTHING IS NORMAL. I am in serious pain and need help trying to a DX. I have seen 1 podiatrist, 1 bone dr, 2 rheumatologis, & 4 of the Gyno's that I work for. Everyone just says "WEIRD". Well I say PAINFUL. PLEASE ANY IDEAS WILL HELP...

User avatar Hi Hippytrip,
Were any diagnostics, i.e., bone scan completed to evaluate for osteomyelitis? Have you experienced any drainage and if so was a specimen sent for culture and sensitivity?
Sincerely,
Theresa Jones, RN
