Be seen: It is hard to say without the benefit of an exam and xray. If it seems like it was mild, you could rest, elevate and ice it. If it seems more severe I would be seen to rule out a more serious injury such as a fracture; particularly if you can not bear weight on it. ...Read more

Plantar faciitis: What you describe sounds like plantar fasciitis- a condition where the sole of the foot by the heel is inflamed. Typically the first step of the day feels like a nail driven into the heel. Stretching helps, as do night splints. However other disorders (tarsal tunnel and stress fractures) can present the same way. An orthopedist specializing in foot and ankle can sort these out and start therapy. ...Read more

I had a stroke a month ago. My right foot hurts so bad I can barely walk. Is that normal?

Not really: Your foot may hurt if you have residual weakness and if your stroke affected your right side. If so, you may be walking differently and favoring your good leg. If you have no residual symptoms, you shouldn't really have right foot pain, although I wouldn't say it's impossible. ...Read more

More specific: If it is on the outside of your foot (the side of the pinky toe), it could be a stress fracture of the 5th metatarsal (common for people with high arches). It could also be tendinitis of the peroneus brevis tendon. See a podiatrist for a full examination with x ray, diagnosis, and treatment options. ...Read more

The front part of my foot hurts after I stepped in a hole. The pain won't go away, but I can walk on my foot. It just throbs and hurts and there is no swelling. What should I do?

How long hurting?: It sounds like a soft tissue injury, which will heal with time, and limited weight bearing. Ice alternating with heat may also help. If the pain persists more than two weeks, it should be evaluated by a foot doctor (podiatrist) or an orthopedist, preferably one specializing in foot/ankle. The possibility of a stress fracture with the injury you describe is a possibility. ...Read more

My foot hurts so bad I can hardly walk bc pressure makes me want to cry or fall. Idk what I did. Hurts to bend too.......help please?

A couple of thoughts: I see you posted a few times. Originally, you mentioned pain to middle three toes and I agree I would consider a neuroma. Now, after this post, I would consider a stress fracture. See a foot doc and get an xray. Ice the foot and stay off of it. A post op or surgical shoe would be helpful until a diagnosis can be given to you. ...Read more

My left foot hurts outside of the 5th metatarsal. It hurts to walk but after ice & using foot massager it feels better. It feels better after I run.

My left foot hurts outside of the 5th metatarsal. It hurts to walk but after ice & using foot massager it feels better. It feels better after I run.

Peroneal Tendonitis: The Peroneus Brevis muscle attaches to the base of the 5th metatarsal and often is the problem with pain in that area of the foot. Ice and massage lowers inflammation and loosens up the tendon. It usually will ge worse with first steps after sitting awhile or sleeping all night. Running probably warms the muscle/tendon up and increases bloodflow which would then make if feel better. ...Read more
