About three years ago I sustained a physical therapy exercise which caused a very puff swelling to occur in my left foot and ankle. It was accompanied by pain along the front of my shin and down into my foot. This all seemed to heal itself within about two weeks. However, ever since then I have suffered from the small puff swelling off and on. Sometimes it is painless, other times it is very tight and uncomfortable but not so much painful. The physical therapy was to help strength my feet and correct my gait in order to elevate the symptoms of metatarsalgia. Lately the swelling seems to be worse even though I’m not having an flare ups with the metatarsal pain. I did recently sustain two minor injuries to that foot but both to the best of my knowledge have healed. The swelling presents itself most fervently when I’ve been sitting a while but can also take place when I am standing or walking if I’m barefoot.
At present I have very little money to go into a doctor for this so I’m looking for insight and input on what might be going on and what I can do to remedy it. Thanks.
