Unhappy 6 months later foot still hurts

I fell and hurt my right foot on July 2009. The Doctor told me I had tendonitis.Although he recommended me to go to therapy I thought it would heal and stayed home. After 6 months of pain I have been going to therapy and it doesn't seem to be healing. According to the doc both x-ray and scan showed no torn tendon. My right foot feels hot and almost like cramped as I sit and always a dull pain. Please help me.

Go back to the doctor and tell him. You need further tests to determine what is wrong. I had the same thing happen. I did not improve and was sent to a teaching hospital and there was diagnosed with my lisfranc. Don't give up, go back and complain!!!

Re: 6 months later foot still hurts

I'm not sure what type of scan you had but if it was a bone scan that nor an x-ray will show soft tissue damage. Sounds like you need an MRI. Have you gone to a Foot and Ankle ortho? Maybe your regular ortho can refer you to one. Six months is a long time to still have pain with no answers. I'm sure you are frustrated. Even bad news is better than not knowing!

best of luck.
