What does it mean when your hand constantly feels like it falls asleep?

It could mean you have carpel tunnel syndrome. if the part of the hand including the thumb to the thumb half of the ring finger (lengthwise) is affected, or if the other half of the ring finger, the pinkie and the part of the hand over them is effected it could be a problem with the ulna nerve. either way I suggest you get it checked out as these conditions can lead to serious damage if left untreated.

Corn

How can you get rid of your corns which are sitting on your hammer toes?

This believe it or not is quite a common question. There are loads of answers. Here are a few ideas.

. Each week, after a bath, file all around the skin of the corn with an emery board, this will keep the skin fresh, soft and easier to ease the corns away.

. Keep your feet regularlly very clean.

. After all this, an idea to actually getrid of them which has been proven to work, is to get some duct tape and cut a fair amount for each corn. You should leave theese on for a week and rip off, repeat and repeat for as long as you see effect.

. If none of this works, consult your doctor, they have certain freeze treatments although this could be a painful option.

Goodluck! I hope this helped at all.

A bone scan showed you broke your Talus bone which is in your foot but you don't remember breaking it or it hurting How is this possible and what could have caused the break?

dude, you must have been drunk, or hi or something. Answer It is possible to break the Talus bone and not realize it and this could be caused from anything from being sports related (football, baseball) or excessive exercise. Many people have broken a bone somewhere in their body and have not realized it. Be thankful!

Hand and Foot Pain

If you are on your feet at work 11 hours a day and the pain in my feet never lets up and gets more painful what can you do about it.?

None of us like pain, but without pain we wouldn't know what part of our body is hurting and thus the problem would never be diagnosed or cured. The best thing for your feet is to wear good shoes (like nurses shoes) and if you are standing still doing a job buy a thick rubber mat to stand on. This helps to absorb the weight of your body. We can all suffer from pain in the feet or hot and sore. You can also ask your boss if you can buy a stool to sit on. In Canada we have Workmen's Compensation Board (don't know about the U.S.) and if you request something like this then your Supervisor or boss has to either provide you with the stool or put you in another job where you are off your feet, but can't fire you. All you have to do is see a doctor and bring in a doctor's note. The best thing to use to sore feet and legs (I can imagine your legs ache right up to your hips as well after an 11 hour shift) use Epsom Salts. This not like table salt. If you don't see it in the drug store then ask the pharmacist where it is. Once home take 3/4 of a cup of Epsom Salts and add boiling water to dissolve. Fill a foot basin (any basic will do) with the Epsom Salts and soak your feet for 15 - 30 minutes each night. Epsom Salts has been used for years and will actually relieve your sore and aching feet. Then use a good foot cream to put moisture back in. There are many products in the drugs store to cool your feet, soften your feet and mint foot creams are excellent for this. Talk to a podiatrist about getting arch supports for your feet. Get them special made if you have to. Mine costs me $60, US . Unsupported arches can cause leg cramps as well.

Hand and Foot Pain

Your foot hurts what should you do?

There are many bones, joint surfaces, muscles, and connective tissues of the foot. Without more detailed info I wouldn't give out a guess as to what is wrong with your foot or what to do about it. If the pain is severe or isn't getting better, you should consider having a doctor check it out.

If the pain is not severe, you should start by offering more information about where it hurts, what movements or positions cause the pain to appear or increase, and what activities have you done recently that could have caused the problem.

Some things to consider:

1. What high impact activities are you doing such as dancing, running or jumping that could be putting chronic stress on the foot? You might need to reduce or stop doing activities like these for a bit and see if the foot improves.

2. Are you spending a lot of time on your feet standing or walking? Pay attention to how you distribute your weight on your feet while you're standing, or how the foot interacts with the ground as you're walking. When you're standing does your weight always shift more to one leg? Does your weight shift more to your heels or the outer edges of the feet? When you walk does one foot seem to move or feel differently when it strikes the ground, or when it propels you forward? If you observe any of the things I mentioned, try making small adjustments to how you stand or walk and see if it provides more comfort to your foot.

3. Have you introduced new foot wear recently that you're not used to wearing? If yes, consider wearing different foot wear for a while and seeing if your foot improves.

4. Do you have old footwear that maybe doesn't support your foot as well anymore due to wear and tear? If yes, buy new shoes.

5. Do you wear high heels or any kind of foot wear that puts the foot in an unnatural position for long periods of time? If yes, consider reducing or eliminating the amount of time you spend in this type of footwear.

6. Do you have any conditions that would affect your blood circulation to your feet? If yes or maybe, consult a doctor.

7. Do you have any conditions that would affect the nerves that connect to the feet? If yes or maybe, consult a doctor.

If you insist on continuing the activities that are stressing your foot, you might consider enlisting the help of a well qualified professional to help you condition your foot to handle higher amounts of physical stress. Regardless of which profession you seek out, do your homework to make sure the practitioner you seek out is experienced and has success with foot issues. Some various suggestions are:

1. A physical therapist. Being a licensed medical professional, a PT has many potential tools in their tool box to help with various ailments. This could be corrective or therapeutic exercises, soft tissue work such as Active Release Therapy, icing, ultrasound or infrared therapy, dry needling, kinesio taping, making custom shoe orthotics, etc. A big benefit of a PT is that most of them take medical insurance.

2. A massage therapist. There are many styles of massage as well as massage therapists that specialize in working with certain types of clients. I would recommend working with one that is licensed by the state you're in, and has experience working with clients in either a clinical or rehab setting or an athletic performance type of setting. Some massage therapists can also take medical insurance.

3. A personal trainer, licensed athletic trainer, or strength & conditioning coach. While personal trainers and strength coaches are not licensed by the state, if you find a good one that has sought out advanced specialized education and has many years of experience working with clients, they might be able to help you. Most fitness professionals don't have much specialized education with the foot, but it doesn't mean they don't exist. A fit pro to consider is one that has sufficient education in biomechanics and anatomy, particularly in the foot. In addition if you can find one that has specialized training in something like Muscle Activation Techniques or Neuro Kinetic Therapy, they would have more tools in their toolbox to help you with. Licensed athletic trainers can do many of the same taping methods as a PT, and they do have some degree of ability to diagnose certain types of injuries.

Why does my toes get stuck and aren't responding when I swim?

Your foot might be cramping up. This happens when you point your toes alot while you are swimming. Does it hurt when your toes get stuck? If so, stretch your toes out. Stop swimming and lean against the wall and move you toes around with your hands. Or you could try facing the wall of the pool in the shallow end, and while keeping your actual foot on the pool floor, put your toes up against the wall. This should help to stretch it out. After the pain is gone, you should be good to go!

Why do you feel pains on your feet anytime you lie on your bed?

You might be suffering from bone spurs in your feet.Heel spur pain is often most intense after long periods of rest from being on your feet. Morning heel spur pain is often the most severe type of heel spur pain. The reason for this is: As you move during the day, the nerves surrounding the heel spur adjust around the spur so that the heel spur is not digging into them. After long periods of rest, such as when sleeping, the nerves relax back into their normal position. Thus, when you get out of bed in the morning, pain can become intense as you are putting weight on the heel for the first time causing the heel spur to be pushed into the sensitive nerves and tissues.

How do you treat heal spur?

To understand how to get rid of a heel spur, it is important to understand what causes a heel spur to form. There are many hard-to-believe theories on the cause of heel spurs. After many years of hearing what has helped different people, our conclusion on the matter is this: Calcium is the most common mineral in our bodies and one of the most important. Our bodies need calcium every day for vital functions such as maintaining a steady heartbeat, building and fixing bones and teeth, helping nerves and muscles to work properly, and helping blood to clot. Calcium enters body cells and activates proteins to do specific things once it is in the cell. For instance when in muscle cells it makes them contract; when in nerve cells it triggers electrical impulses to send a message; when in white blood cells it fights germs. The amount of calcium that we absorb from our diet varies. Age is one factor. An adolescent may absorb up to 75% of the calcium obtained from foods, while adults absorb anywhere from 20-30%. Our bones feel solid and permanent, but they're like any other body tissue- they're constantly being broken down and formed again. In adults, 20% of bone calcium in withdrawn from bones and replaced each year. If we do not get enough calcium from our daily diet, our body will leach calcium away from our bones to use for the vital functions of our bodies. In many people this happens to be in the heel bone or some other weak area of the body. While being leached, it forms an eruption (like a volcano). This eruption is a bone spur (heel spur). Many people that suffer from heel spurs find relief when they properly supplement their diet daily with "good" calcium. When the body is fed the right amount of "good" calcium, the eruption subsides - along with the pain. The calcium must be carefully formulated to be easily digested to accomplish the "good" calcium environment in building healthy body/bone cells.
