Iwent to er and they a utersound nothing showed and i went the orthapedic surgon and they did xrays nothing showed please tell me want else it could be and what to do
Kathy, does the pain incease when you walk? Look at both feet, and one at a time, press a spot... at first the area will be white, but then turn back to pink very quickly. Also, have you noticed any discoloration in your feet lately at all?
This could be a problem with circulation. Go back to your Dr. re-express your concerns and the fact that pain persists. Even though the ultra sound was clear, you may need a few more specific tests to see if the circulation is what it should be. Peripheral artery disease is a decrease in the circulation to your legs. It begings with pain, especially when walking, and finally a clot will develope which is a medical emergency. Do a little research on it and go back to your DR. or see a new one... I ended up having to see a new one. I'm going to mark you as a friend, please do the same so you can let me know how you're doing with this... this has to be taken care of early on if you do have PAD... I lost one of my legs to it.
I don't know if also Neuropathy would show up on an ultrasound? You would have swelling of both the legs and feet with symptoms somewhat like PAD.
My 74yr old Aunt suffers from PAD having it for years going undiagnosed until she got gangrene in one of her fingers as some of the same problems exist in her arms/hands. She lost a finger but was close to losing her life if I hadn't gotten her in I was told she would've died within less than 24 hours.
Now she has been told to keep both her legs and feet elevated most of the time. She is on a walker with every form of Arthritis and also has Fibro and Scoliosis.
Sometimes she is still stubborn not keeping her feet up like she should and when she does this, her toes literally turn a dark purple and the blood is going down through the veins but not going back up into the arteries to her heart. This is a very dangerous condition and if you were tested for this, an ultrasound would have showed this as they take your pulse in your feet while doing these tests.
Neuropathy is another thing to consider since your ultrasound was good. If you have swelling of both legs and feet with a lot of pain, this could be a cause and something to look into and have your doctor test for.
Also the color changes would be present.
I hope this helps for you to find a diagnosis.
