Bare feet, flip flops, and other flat shoes should be avoided. The pain usually doesn't appear until the next morning and can be relieved by stretching.

I rolled ankle and feel this morning. Ankle doesn't hurt but foot very sore half way between last toe and ankle. Can put wght on foot lifting it sore.

Fracture: One thing that can occur when you sprain or twist your ankle is a fracture of the base of the 5th metatarsal. This can often go untreated. My recommendation is to get an x-ray of the foot and ankle to make sure that you don't have a fracture. If you don't then ice, elevation, compression and an NSAID will help to resolve the sprain. ...Read more

My daughter, 38yrs old has skin eczema on her feet. They are cracked pretty bad. This morning there is a knot or boil on her heel that is very sore.

I wake up in the morning with an aching pain in the outside part of my right foot. It goes after a few minutes of standing/walking. What is this?

Stretching: Not sure if this has happend once or it happens ever morning. A couple of things could be causing it. 1st, you could have a problem with the tendons/ligaments in your foot that resolves with standing and stretching it out. 2nd, remember you move quite a bit in your sleep, & you can pull and strain things even then. Either way if it goes away with minutes of normal activity, I would be reassured. ...Read more
