Sudden pain on top of foot, was not doing amytjong. Hurts to bend toes, flex or point foot, walk up/down stairs not so much when walking regular.

Injury to tendons: Many times we strain ligaments and tendons, without realizing or remembering. When you injure an extensor tendon(function in raising the toes and foot) it will hurt to flex and point your toes. The injury only hurts at the end range of motion. We tend to keep walking on such injures and they become slow to heal. Resting such injuries, result in a faster recovery. ...Read more

Yeah, you'll want to: see someone about that.
without an exam, I can only give general information. We go from what is there at the site of the problem. There are muscles, joints, and tendons. The joints can swell up. But bones can have chronic stress fractures. In both cases, long term treatment of immobilzation and x rays to see what is going on is helpful. ...Read more

Infection?: This sounds like an infection -- maybe cellulitis (infection in the skin) or perhaps deeper, i.e. inside the foot. Or possibly a form of arthritis. Any of these can be serious if not quickly diagnosed and treated, so see a doctor ASAP. Good luck. ...Read more

Stool dropped on top of foot, instant bruise. Can walk fine but very painful to touch. When should I get checked out?

Stool dropped on top of foot, instant bruise. Can walk fine but very painful to touch. When should I get checked out?

Hard to say?: If one is able to walk after this type of injury, and there is bruising and swelling, usually one can determine after elevating the extremity, placing ice on it, and perhaps taking some ibuprofen, that they would be able to tell if they need to be seen or not. If there is any chance of deformity of the foot, one would definitely need to be seen in a few hours to a day or so. ...Read more

Pain in 3 middle toes causing pain fron top of foot to ankle. Hurts to walk most of the time....   started in the past couple wks. Pain worse n wors?

Goll Darn it.: When complaints of pain involve the middle three toes are made, conditions involving specific nerves connected with those toes need to be looked into. Often times pain will exist when walking and even more with certain shoes. There could also be involvement with the bones in the area such as a stress fracture. Either way, the problem would best be treated by a specialist who treats foot problems ...Read more

Power drill fell ~12 inches onto top of foot. It was swollen/red at first but it's gone down & im able to walk on it perfectly. Could it be fractured?

Unlikely: Unlikely due to your symptoms but you may have a stress fracture or a bone contusion. If pain and swelling have gone down and able to ambulate without issues, then it is unlikely you need to worry about it. If you are concerned, just set up an appointment for a standing x-ray of the foot. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Chronic top of foot pain following excess standing. Post walking/running pain. Mri neg. For stress fx or tendonitis. No obvious dx.   Ideas?

Probably Tendonitis: Even though your mris were negative, low grade tendonitis of the extensor tendons on the top of the feet can be negative on mris. If the top of your foot hurts to pull your toes up and/or down, probably 95% chance of tendonitis. ...Read more
