About 4 months ago at work a coworker stepped on my foot by accident. Since then I've had a lump on the side of the foot with a great deal of pain. It now appears that I'm losing feeling in my toes. About a year ago I was told that I was a borderline Diabetic. I am controlling it with diet and my readings have been on the most part close to normel. My first A1C test was a 7.1 my most recent one was a 6.0. The clinic here said I had a inflamed foot and to take advil for it. While I still have the pain and it's getting worse now that I'm losing feeling in my toes I'm getting scared. I had 2 sets of XRAYS taken the first set revealed nothing, the second showed a hairline fracture that was well on it's way to be mended no explaination for the lump was given. I also have flat feet and am on my feet all night long at work. Please can someone give me some advice and what options do I have?:eek:
