My daughter had an accident, in which she fell through some loose flooring. She was admitted to a&e. had xrays done, no problem could be found. She mentioned to the nurse that she could not feel her toe, when checking it, it was noted that it was cold and blue.

She was told she had badly sprained her foot. and too take it easy.

After a few weeks things were no better, her toe still going cold and blue, with very sharp pains underneath the first bit of her toe. so we sent her for physiotherapy.

Her physiotherapist after a few weeks was not happy, suggested she returned to her gp, to get referred to a specialist at our local hospital. She has seen this specialist who referred her for MRI's, the MRI mentioned bone marrow oedema around the medial sesamoid. This could not been seen on plain x-rays. He has also suggested she has chronic pain syndrome!

After nearly four months it it still no better, can anyone help, She is at uni, training to be PE teacher, and as you can image this is not helping!!

All suggestions greatly appriciated. :confused:
