I have pain on the outside of my foot by my ankle, but no bruising and no swelling. It hurts when I walk, haven't tried running. Any ideas?

See a podiatrist. If this is a chronic problem, you have to rule out a fracture or a tendonitis, or both. You may have injured it without knowing. If you haven't already done so, i would suggest having it properly examined and get x-rays. If you continue to walk with pain, you risk injuring it more, changing the way you are walking and creating a new problem because of compensation. Get it checked!
Pain in foot/.ankle. I assume you are a runner? Several things come to mind. Stress fracture of the 5th mt, tendonitis of the peroneus tendons, bony contusion to 5th MT (outside bone in foot). Try icing 20-30min on then 20-30 min off and OTC dose of anti-inflamatory liek advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) per label directions(provided there is no reason for you NOT to take them) No running. If no better 10-14 days see doc.

What Fracture ? A broken foot can describe a lot of things. There was no swelling or bruising for 6 days. I can only assume there was no or minimal pain, since you did not mention it. Just how bad could it be broken? One way to find out is to have the foot evaluated to identify the total extent of the injury. If it is broken, to any extent, it has to be stabilized, most commonly by a cam walker. Now, you decide. Read more...
