Purely based: On exact location of pain and clinical exam the doctor should have a differential diagnosis. Xrays only show bone and are only going to help if there is bony injury. If you simply mark your foot with an "x" take a pic and post it a differential diagnosis could be given...Was your doctor a specialist?
