Forearm Extensor Tendonitis
possible...: Tendonitis implies inflammation/irritation of the tendons — in this case, the extensor ones on the top of the foot.

I would suggest that you visit a podiatrist who specializes in gait analysis to address the issue. ...Read more

Use ice initially, and then switch to warm moist heat after a few days if still symptomatic. ...Read more
Time/rest/NSAIDS: Usually tendinitis will improve over time with rest, activity modification, and use of Ibuprofen type meds. If this does not work and depending on the location of the tendinitis, injections of cortisone are sometimes used. If this fails, a few types of tendinitis can be treated surgically, but this is rare in the forearm and usually not necessary. See your doctor if it doesn't improve. ...Read more
