Top foot hurts: sounds like it might be tendonitis or acute joint arthritis if no trauma to area. Try ice, pain reliever if no medical reason not to. If not better in 5-7 days, gets worse or you develop fever, please see your doctor. Hope this helps. Good luck,

Hurt Foot: You may have tendinitis which can be quite painful and related to various activities or the shoes you are wearing. Take an anti inflammatory like Advil (ibuprofen) and give it a couple of days. If there is no improvement, see a doc!
