Sorry to hear about your foot. Frankly, I am not sure what is going on. Is the edema bad? Is it pitting edema? The pain is likely due to the swelling. Is there a possibility of an infection somewhere on the foot? Probably not or you would have noticed some warmth in the area with some redness. Are there swollen lymph nodes in the groin area? Do you have cats? Just some things to think about. I don't think this is neurological.

Hi....I have a foot drop on my left ankle and because of it , I
have a swelling whenever I'm on it for any length of time...or if the weather is unusually warm.
Thank you sooo much for commenting!
What is a foot drop and what is the cause of it? I need to fix it fast because I'm getting married in Sept.- can't get any shoes on my left foot other than Birkies.. Any information would be appreciated- my PCP seems to be at wits end- he has no advice left to give me.
What is the situation with your heart? Have they checked it out? Sometimes, with certain heart or vascular conditions of your legs, you can get edema of your foot/ankle. I was having really big trouble with that at one point, was put on an antibiotic for something else and "poof" the problem disappeared. Would your doc be willing to put you on a light short-term antibiotic to see if it would help?
It's something worth looking into. I'll ask him about it at my next appointment. My blood pressure was somewhat low(105/65)when I had my physical in May. Thanks for a fresh perspective!
I am 24 and in florida..I have been having the same symptoms in my left foot and calf..I do not have insurance and haven't been to a doctor yet..it has been 6 weeks as well for me. You have given me alot to think about. I will definitely seek a doctors diagnosis since it could be much more than a tendon injury as I assumed, thanks.
