unfortunately the last two days were awful lots of un expected problems!! And im a big time nervous, wich I could get rid of my nervousness and have a strong nerve ! I could barely read half of neurology which made me 2 days behind my scheduale. Im delaying uwsa until the last week , i subscribed for nbme 2 and will take it hopefully today or tommorrow once i feel better and relaxed. How many pages mtb are u doing per day and when is ur exam ?!



everything will be alright . just take a deep breath. I wont suggest you to take the nbme untill u feel relaxed and confident

Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS), also known as posterior tibial neuralgia, is a compression neuropathy and painful foot condition in which the tibial nerve is compressed as it travels through the tarsal tunnel.[1] This tunnel is found along the inner leg behind the medial malleolus.

Inside the tunnel, the nerve splits into three different segments. One nerve (calcaneal) continues to the heel, the other two (medial and lateral plantar nerves) continue on to the bottom of the foot.

The tarsal tunnel is delineated by bone on the inside and the flexor retinaculum on the outside.


Depending on the area of entrapment, other areas can be affected. If the entrapment is high, the entire foot can be affected as varying branches of the tibial nerve can become involved.

Patients with TTS typically complain of numbness in the foot radiating to the big toe and the first 3 toes, pain, burning, electrical sensations,Pain worsens and spreads after standing for long periods; pain is worse with activity and is relieved by rest.


Plantar fascitis

Heel pain worst at the morning , improves with walking few steps . Point tenderness near calcaneus.

No correlation with the presence of heel spurs. 


nice images..

Good JOb..
