Foot pain on outside of foot when walk or climb stairs?

Short leg: Generally pain on the outside of one foot is from a short leg providing you have not had trauma to your foot or leg.

See a podiatrist for better diagnosis. ...Read more

A few possibilities: Depending on where the pain is, this could be capsulits, tendonitis or even a developing stress fracture. Your best bet is to see a podiatrist for an evaluation and x-rays. Treatment will depend on the cause of the pain but rest, ice, good shoe support and maybe some Ibuprofen or Naproxen can help. ...Read more

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 ?

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

L4-S1 fuse 2/28/14. Sharp pain in lft lwr bk after flu on 5/1. Shoot to butt some pain outside of foot. PT thinks tendon/nerve from hardware. Concern?

Weakness?: Your pain symptoms are suggesive of nerve impingement/sciatica but it is more concerning that you noted weakness in your conditions. If this pain is making you weak it adds urgency to the situation. Either way this pain is concerning and should be discussed with your neurosurgeon particularly since it seems to have persisted for more than a month. It may be related to previous problem/surgery. ...Read more

I have heel pain and foot pain on the outside of foot immediately in front of the heel. It seems to get aggravated after running or being on my feet.

I have heel pain and foot pain on the outside of foot immediately in front of the heel.  It seems to get aggravated after running or being on my feet.

Varies: There are a number of possibilities and I would not hesitate to be seen. Plantar fasciitis is one of the more common causes of heel pain and usually causes pain "immediately in front of the heel." If you are a runner, a calcaneal stress fracture can be another consideration. A detailed exam and appropriate studies would likely determine the cause ...Read more

Sharp foot pain on the outside of foot about 1 1/2 inches away from pinky toe. Do not remember any injury. Worse in the morning. Doesn't seem swollen ?

Sharp foot pain on the outside of foot about 1 1/2 inches away from pinky toe. Do not remember any injury. Worse in the morning. Doesn't seem swollen
?

Sounds like a tailor: bunion. It is caused by improper footwear. It is at the base of the little toe. Usually we see this in people with a"splay foot". This means when your foot hits the ground the forefoot widens. Have 2 look for this barefooted. If dress shoes & heelx make it more sore that is most likely the problem. ...Read more

Yes, I have an idea: See your doctor. Anything that is painful or tender with erythema present for 2 months and is spreading should not be ignored. Do not be satisfied with Doctor Google. ...Read more

In light of that, the best advice i can offer you is to bring your foot to a podiatrist or orthopedist and get it checked out. Even with more information, diagnosing over the internet is really impossible and not in your best interests. Good luck! ...Read more

Stress on bone.: It sounds like you may be exhibiting a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal. Probably best to have the foot examined to remove all doubt. You might need a special boot to help stabilize the bone. There could be other possibilities, but all may require resting the foot, so why not with a boot. ...Read more

I have pain on the outside of my foot. Dr said it was Achilles' tendon heel spur. How can this be if the swelling and pain are on the side?

GOOD POINT: That's a good point. A retrocalcaneal spur should hurt directly behind the heel bone. Talk to your doctor again; make sure he/she knows exactly where the pain is located, and ask them this same question. ...Read more
