Something is wrong: Anytime you have pain, there is something wrong. There are a few possibilities. It could be the foot pain comes first, i.E plantar fascitis and as a result you are compensating or walking differently and then getting the leg pain. Knowing if you are flatfooted or have a high arch would help but in either case an orthotic might help. A nerve problem should also be ruled out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Plantar fasciitis: The bump can be a plantar fibromatosis caused by overuse injury to your plantar fascia ligament. What happens is the plantar fascia becomes so tight it has micro tears, then your body is trying to repair it, it scars and forms a nodule.

Stretching, ice and steroid injection can help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not so easy.: A very sensible approach. The problem is that the arch support design is really dependent on your foot structure. Without knowing that detail, advice on which support to use is difficult and many times wrong. Some supports are for higher arches and some for lower arches. Some are more flexible than others. Shoes need to have a removable insole so that a better fitting one can be fit. ...Read more

LLD: A limb length discrepancy causes each foot to function different from the other; both abnormally. At 29, the long-standing LLD has finally become apparent. I personally like a scanogram to determine the exact difference; it gets right down to millimeters. After that, some type of orthotic device to accommodate the LLD. Maybe some back x-rays, to check for any compensation higher up. ...Read more
