I have been having problems with my right foot. I wore Danskos which might have contributed to this problem. Although it?s getting worse and I stopped wearing danskos 2 months ago.. I started having pain on the right side of my foot. It hurt to put pressure on it. I was also having this issue wear if I touched the top of my foot my toes would tingle and go numb. This has been going on for about 3 months. Last week I started developing about a quarter size lump on the very top of my foot. Right in the middle of my foot. About 2 inches up from my toes and an inch or so down from my ankle, if that helps with location. The same area where when I touch it my toes tingle. The lump seemed to swell throughout the day or get bigger and then seemed to get smaller. To where it almost looked like I had a dark bruise under my skin. Now it is just getting bigger and I am having a lot of foot pain that is radiating into my ankle area. I am to the point where it hurts to walk and I feel like it is affecting my entire ankle, foot area. The lump still seems to be bigger at certain times although I cant pinpoint any times like after activity or after rest, it almost seems worse after I wake up. I do have high arches also. I saw a podiatrist about a month ago prior to the lump and he just gave me a cortisone shot and said he thought it was a nerve problem. The cortisone shot did nothing. And now my foot is just getting worse and now I have this lump forming. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

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!
