Should you start to worry?

“Should I be worried about this sharp pain in my foot?”

Certainly, this is a question our Wappingers Falls foot specialist hears often.

The answer is… it depends.

How long has it occurred? Where is it located? Does it happen only when you’re standing or also when you’re sitting? Does it last for a minute or come and go quickly?

An important question is, did a pain that’s been present for awhile change from dull to sharp?

It seems as though the onset of sharp pain is often what prompts a person who’s had pain to finally schedule an appointment.

Sharp pain that’s been present for more than a week can be concerning. 

Some of the possible causes are a ligament or tendon tear, a broken bone, a pinched nerve or inflammation.

Yes, these conditions can all occur without an injury.

Other than cutting back on your activity, there isn’t a good home remedy for sharp pain in your foot.

Having us evaluate and x-ray your foot is the best starting point.

Sometimes an MRI is needed to see if a tear or joint problem is the cause.

You can save yourself from a long-term problem and spending more money than needed by not letting a sharp pain go untreated for too long.

Sharp pain in your foot doesn’t always indicate something bad has happened, but it can.

Not allowing an aching or throbbing type of foot pain to become sharp often means having a specialist diagnose and treat it early.
