foot bone pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with Harry G. Baldinger, DPM from New York. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.

The Problem:

You had a great time at the party.  Great food, liquor and friends, but you wake up at 2:00 A.M..  You are in excruciating pain.  Your big toe or ankle joint hurts like hell, its red, swollen and you cannot step on your foot!  Your wife doesn’t believe you.  It’s happened before, but you tolerated the pain, and it went away after a few days.

 

The Diagnosis

You are having a gout attack! 

 

What is the best OTC pain medication for gout?

The Advil or Motrin in your medicine cabinet will actually make it worse.  Don’t try aspirin either.

 

Should I go to an urgent care? 

Well, they may help you.  They may prescribe a 40 year old drug called Allopurinol, but it can’t get you out of pain in 10 minutes like Dr. Baldinger can.

You need to get to that morning meeting and right now you can’t even walk to the bathroom.

 

Why is this happening?

Gout can be caused by trauma or your diet. If you are prone to gout attacks you may need long term medical management as well as a quick fix to get you and keep you out of pain.

 

The Solution: 

If this sounds like you need to see the gout expert, Dr. Baldinger. Dr. Baldinger can get you out of pain in 10 minutes and develop a long term treatment plan for medical management to prevent recurrence.

Dr. Baldinger has treated hundreds of patients like you with success. 

P.S.  Don’t call us at 2 AM, try a warm compress (no ice). 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our offices located in Suffern and Brooklyn, NY. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs. Call us at 845-425-8686 for an appointment if this sound like you.

Wounds That Don't Heal Need to Be Checked

Your feet are covered most of the day. If you're diabetic, periodic screening is important for good health. Numbness is often a sign of diabetic foot and can mask a sore or wound.
