I ran over the arch of my foot with my work trolley (fully loaded cleaning trolley) a few days ago, at first it didn't hurt v much, then it steadily got worse and it hurts a lot, it hurts when I wake up. I can still hobble around on it, then it hurts when I rest it initially. After a few hours the pain wears off until I walk on it again. It also get more painful in the evening although I am resting it. My foot was also freezing cold like an ice block the eve after I injured it and still feels very cold. The pain is across the middle of my foot running from my toes to my shin. I went to the doc who said it was bruised in between my little toes and told to use a heat pack, my foot also cracked hobbling out :/ The problem is that using a heat pack on my foot gives me incredible pain and it feels like someone is crushing my foot. Using a ice pack helps along with painkillers and elevation. I am unsure of how to treat my foot as I wish it to heal asap, could you give me some advice please

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
