Re: Foot Pain

: I have been having foot pain and swelling for the last three weeks. I was diagnosed on the 31st of october as having Phlebitis. I was given an anti-inflammatory rx called naprosyn and told that if the pain does not get any better in 1 week call back.
: I then called back and was told give it another week. The swelling has gone down but the pain is still there. The Rx has done nothing for the pain.
: Symptoms....
: Pain around the ankle and in the arch of my foot. Pain is sensitive to the touch.
: Burning or tightness sensation every now and then on the top of my ankle and calf..
: Pain sometimes generated up to my knee with a tightness.
: Pain when sitting or lying down.
: Pain during elevation, pain first thing in the morning when I get out of bed.
: Sometimes I can actually walk on my left foot without any pain, other times I walk with a limp.
: Friends of mine work for a vascular surgeon and the did a courtesy Venous Doppler that showed no possible DVT.
: I don't know what to do next.
