Foot pain

Postby BlueRose » Tue Sep 07, 2010 4:02 pm

I have a pain in my foot when I walk. It's on the outside of the foot on the bottom towards the heel. I'm not sure if it's just muscles, tendons, or anything I should be more concerned about (like a bone fracture), and I can't seem to find anything when I touch it with my fingers. Anyone had a similar problem and can give me a ballpark of what I should be doing?


Thanks!

Does the pain feel like one spot, or like it extends up and down the foot a bit? Is is a dull or sharp pain? Does it start hurting anytime you walk, or do you need to be walking for a while? Do you remember doing something specific, or did it just start one morning when you got up? How long has it been going on?

About a week, and it appears to be localized. I only feel it when I walk, and length of time doesn't appear to be a factor.

I don't recall doing ANYTHING specific, which is the sad part. It was just this random, random thing.

I have a very bad diagnoses for you. You have a condition called "getting old". LOL You will experience pains and have no idea how they came to be. You just wake up, and something hurts.

If you don't remember anything specific, you probably haven't fractured anything. But the fatty tissue on the bottom of your foot might be thinned in an area from repetitive use causing some of the bone to be exposed, or you just might have tweaked a tendon or ligament. You might be over training with doing two workouts a day. Maybe just focus on upper body for a week and see how it feels.

LOL Except that I'm nowhere near that old to receive such a prognosis, I walk CONSTANTLY and was even a part of the Avon Walk this past year and did the full 36.3 miles.

However... there IS a lot of plyometric insanity going on in Insanity and I'm wondering if I hurt something or came down too hard.

I think "getting old" starts in your mid 20's. That's about the time I remember having unexplained pains. LOL

It sounds more like a repetitive use injury than a single trauma event injury. Have you tried soaking your foot? Even if it doesn't help, it still feels great:)

Have not tried. I'm just wondering why it'd be happening and the pain appears to sometimes get better, sometimes get worse. I think it's definitely a repetitive use injury.

I bought some new airr soles for my shoes, hoping that'll help...

hello there :D
if it's something which really concerns you, wouldn't it be better to see a podiatrist? i'm not a fan of diagnosis over the internet. so please forgive me if my suggestion seems too quick & easy.
i'm focusing on some kind of stuff

It appears *knocks on wood* to be gone after a chiropractic adjustment.

Funny, huh? Hopefully I'm not wrong...
