I have pain in the top of my foot pain is worse after I sit and then stand up. I was wondering if being flat footed can cause this?

Possibly: Flat feet can cause a lot of foot and ankle pains. However, if you have swelling along the top of your foot, you may have a stress fracture, especially if the pain is gets worse the longer you are on your foot. A good arch support, rest and x-rays to rule out a stress fracture is advised. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Should my foot hurt after almost a week since being stepped on by somebody else?

Should my foot hurt after almost a week since being stepped on by somebody else?

Stepped: Usually not. But, if it was hard enough, you may have an injury needing attention by a podiatrist or your pcp. It may be just a contusion (blunt injury) with residual pain. If it continues the same for another week and you can't walk on it, get some help. Try ice and rest. You might want to try some Aleve (naproxen) or Motrin also to decrease the soreness due to the injury. ...Read more
