What are Foot Pain causes?

Foot pain is common and can vary from one complaint to the next. There are many things that can trigger foot problems. Here are some causes of foot pain that can be both complicated and not so complicated. Bunions, one of the most self-inflictive things that we do to ourselves is a protrusion, usually located at the base the big toe but can also be found on the little. This can become more severe with the development of a callus. If you pay attention to what type of shoe you’re wearing, this can be easily corrected. This is more common for women who prefer to wear high heels (narrow toed shoes).

Take Note

  • The Achilles bone spur, which requires surgery, is more difficult and more painful. Although the pain may go away on its own, it can sometimes be severe enough to cause long-term problems.
  • Hammer toes are when your toe curves downward into a claw-like shape. This may require tape to straighten and realign.
  • Poorly fitting shoes can cause corns. This is because they put pressure on certain areas, which eventually forms a callus. The skin may become sore and tender from the thickening. Calluses can also be found on the heels or balls of your feet. Plantar fasciitis is most commonly found in the heel. However, it can also be caused by fallen arches, also called flat feet. It doesn’t hurt if you’re standing. This happens when you strain the ligament that supports your arch. Orthotics may be able to provide relief.
  • Gout is another painful condition that needs medical attention. This is caused by an excessive amount of uric acid being produced in your blood. Crystals build up in the joints and can cause severe pain. This is a common condition that affects both males and females. It can also be seen in people with diabetes, kidney disease, obesity, sickle cell anemia, and diabetes.
  • You should also be aware of fungal infection. This can cause itching, redness, blisters, and sometimes even blisters. Athlete’s foot, which is mildly contagious, can also be passed on through direct contact. These fungi can grow in your shoes. The treatment of athlete’s foot is possible with topical antifungal sprays, lotions, or medications.
  • As silly as it sounds, foot pain can also be caused by tightening your shoelaces. This puts pressure on the top of your foot and can cause pain, swelling, and circulation problems. Diabetes sufferers should be aware of this.
