Question by Generic Skeptic: How can I identify mysterious foot/leg pains?
Several days ago my foot began to hurt. Not my entire foot, just the top of it.
A day or two later it started becoming swollen.
Another day later the inside of my lower leg began to hurt.
This is really weird because there is no visible signs like bruising or redness. Only the swelling on the top of my foot. None of my joints hurt and I don’t recall hurting it in any way. But even if I did, and I can’t remember, why would the pain spread to my leg?
Lucky it is only mildly painful, but enough to cause me to limp at times. I don’t have health insurance so a doctors visit is out of the question.
Is there any way I can find out what this is and how to treat it?

Soak your feet in warm water with a handful of table salt in it .Do this for 15 mins before going to bed.
Consult the doctor if this doesnt work

I am 52 years old. This pain is usually severe in the morning when I just woke up. The shoes I wear are of right sizes and shapes.

Bone spurs are one problem, the Acilles(spelled wrong)tendon being damaged is another.
