Right foot pain after car accident
(San Francisco, Ca)
My right foot was injured when I was rear ended by two other cars. The MRI was negative. However my foot continues to bother me years later. I notice differences between my feet when I drive, walk or even when I am resting my feet. The sensation can be described as a tingling, slightly painful, and some times numbing feeling. It is located mostly in the mid section of my foot on top, but sometimes it can be on the right side, ankles or else where. I don't want to go to a doctor because I feel like they won't believe me since I can not pin point an exact spot. The pain is real. Using an orthodic shoe to drive with has not helped the situation. What is wrong with my foot? Is this permanent? Thank you
I do not know why you think a doctor will not believe you just because you cannot pin point the pain. Things like this can be very common in accidents.
I think your best bet would be to see a neurologist since your symptoms are neurological in nature.
As a side note, did you injure your back at all in the auto accident? I ask because your symptoms could also be the result of nerve irritation in your lower back.
