Injured tendons/muscles on top of foot. ER doctor placed brace, gave meds and made appt with podiatrist. Foot is hot/very painful with brace. Normal?
Are you sure??: When a 55 year old male is experiencing a very hot and painful foot, one should consider gout involvement, especially if the injury is questionable.

Just a thought. ...Read more

What can cause the tendons in the top of your feet to cramp and draw/ have tried taking magnesium and eating foods with lots of potassium?

It's always a challenge trying to give specific answers without the benefit of an examination or the ability to ask you specific questions.
That being said, the fact that you can run probably excludes any vascular issue like poor circulation (which is unlikely in a younger person). Knowing you have flat feet, and given the widespread involvement that is limited to only your lower extremities, the first thing I would investigate is a biomechanical cause for your symptoms. If your foot structure is such that it's causing your leg muscles to overwork in an effort to compensate for the structural issues, that most certainly can cause all sorts of muscle fatigue, heel pain, shin splints, low-grade tendonitis, etc.
I would recommend seeing a podiatrist and get a biomechanical examination. Orthotics, either a good over-the-counter kind, or a custom molded pair will improve your symptoms dramatically. Also, needless to say, make sure you take enough time to stretch before and after each run.
Good luck. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have pain on top of foot from toes to ankle. Very painful. Goin on 3 weeks. What could b wrong?
Many variables: You did not mention trauma. Are your ankle or foot joints hot? Are they swollen? Any new activities? My first thoughts would include some form of nerve entrapment, paresthesia, or arthritis. Arthritis can run the gamut from gout, calcium pyrophosphate deposition, degenerative, rheumatoid or lupus. Of course, nothing can take the place of a thorough exam and appropriate blood work. ...Read more
Pain on top of foot, burning & tingling, radiates up outter leg almost feels like electrical sensation, what's the cause?
Many possibilities: Unfortunately, the process of getting sensation from your foot to your brain has many steps, and as such there are many things that can go wrong. Some possibilities include pinched peroneal nerve at the knee, pinched nerve root in the lower spine, irritation in the spinal cord itself, or a problem in the brain. A neurologist can help localize the problem and determine an effective treatment. ...Read more
Type your question here...pain on top of foot, knot, swelling. Mole at site appeared recently. What could it be?
Several diagnoses: A knot on top of the foot can be anything from a soft tissue mass to a simple ganglion cyst to an abscess.

The 'mole' may be incidental but in very rare cases, a malignant skin lesion may be the cause. Go see the doctor! ...Read more
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
