In brief: Pain on top of foot

Pain on top of foot can come from inflammation of tendons from any pressure on the foot, including tight shoes/laces and irritation of the nerve.
Eliminate any pressure, use combo of ice/moist heat/ ice again for 5 min , apply traumeel cream 3-4 x a day if you have no allergies to any meds and can take nsad's for 1 wk.If not better, see podiatrist to r/o stress fracture/ tear of tendon.
