Very sore point centre of ball of foot. Pain now rising up leg. Going on 2wks - what can I do?

Left foot pain intermittently for 2 1/2months in my mid foot around the 4th metatarsal. It's a deep aching feeling, sometimes sharp. Not relieved w RICE?

Meet Dr. Morton.: Rice, when used appropriately, can help to minimize the acuteness of an injury and speed the recovery process. It could be that your condition is not one of those conditions. A sometimes deep aching and sometimes sharp pain in the 4th metatarsal region is classic for a neurofibroma. Some more possibilities are also possible. This is easily verified by a foot specialist. Treatment can vary. ...Read more

I have a broken foot and using cam walker w crutches not bearing weight. Going on week 6 and my foot is still sore and bruised. Boot somewhat heavy?

Keep wearing boot: Keep wearing the boot. Sometimes a break in the foot, depending on the bone, can take up to 3 to 6 months to heal. If you continue to have pain and swelling you may need another x-ray and possibly an mri. Sometimes trauma to the soft tissue can cause continued swelling which can be helped with a cortizone (hydrocortisone) injection, icing, or anti-inflammatories. ...Read more

My feet hurt most of the time; it feels like I'm always standing on something hard in the middle of my foot. Myheel hurts and is sore in the morning. What should I do?

Plantar fasciitis: It hurts especially when arising from bed or out of a sitting position. It won't usually be cured until you receive some treatment form a physician.

Pain in foot, worse with use. Had for months. Not improving Sharp pain if side outside of foot pressed. Aching all time now. What could be wrong?

Needs evaluation: I have found that there is usually a primary location of injury/inflammation. Many times we will favor the area and shift our weight. It seems that the outside of the foot ends up bearing weight causing pain there. I am imagining your primary pain to be near the ball of the foot. This can be the result a stress fracture or even perhaps a Morton's neuroma. The squeezing pain points to neuroma ...Read more

My outer right foot hurts when I walk on it. I did a 4 mile race on Saturday. Yesterday it hurt so bad to walk on it and still is sore today. What to do?

With such a sudden -: Onset of pain, like you mention, the chances of it being a stress Fx would be extremely high.
So go and see your PCP to get an Xray, or an Foot Doc. At times the Xr's are negative, then a Bone scan might be needed.
In the meantime, restrict all activities, to reduce symptoms and not making the problem worse. Take Aleve (naproxen) or Motrim.
Good Luck. ...Read more
