It started 3 weeks ago. On my right foot on top, it started out a little sore the first week. Second week it hurt. This third week I can hardly stand on it. It hurts so bad, in the past week I've seen my phy,he sent me to a foot doc, then he sent me to a podiatrist, then he sent me tonight to have an MRI. X-rays that were taken Friday shows I have a cyst in my foot putting preasure on an artery. By the end of the day at work my foot hurts all the way up to my knee. And I wear steel toed boots. And stand on my feet for 10 hours per day. Has anyone else had this kinda thing happen.

No but what are they going to do about that cyst! It seems to me it should be removed so you can heal!

yea i agree. i just have to wait on the mri results now i reckon. but my foot is in so much pain. something has to be done. i work 10 hours a day in steel toe boots and that is just torture. the pain is so bad it goes from my foot all the way up to my knee.

Darrell, Is there any way you can work less hours per day until the cyst is taken care of? Foot problems with diabetes is serious.
