Common Questions and Answers about Foot pain after marathon

foot

I got up early in the night and initially it painful putting weight on my foot, however after a few steps the pain decreased. On getting up this morning the lump on my foot has disappeared, however I have some redness stretching from about 1cm below my big toe to just above my ankle. It is tender to touch however not painful to walk on. I have only slight tenderness in my lower leg now. Please could you advise what this could be and if I need to see anyone.
I'm back to having the tingling, spasms and vertigo again, along with a bit of blurred vision. I'm a marathon runner and am currently training for the Boston Marathon. For people who don't run marathons that might not seem like a big deal, but, for me, it is. It took me several years of hard training, running 70 miles a week, to finally get a fast enough time to qualify to even run this race - there is no way I'm not running it.
There was a point of two days when one of my legs went almost entirely numb (my husband was pinching me as hard as he could and all I could feel was pressure, not pain, kind of like having an epidural) and I was having trouble even walking across my house because my leg wouldn't move right and it felt heavy, and these same two days I was having problems breathing and swallowing from time to time. The doctor ordered a bunch of blood tests and an MRI of my brain (without contrast).
With further pain rule out any local injury or any problem at the ankle and get yourself examined by an orthopedician. There would be some amount of pain after 10 kms of running and I would suggest you to go progressively and do not exert yourself. Take rest for couple of days, take intermittent NSAIDs, apply ice packs and continue. Take care!
For the past three days I've had pain in my right foot. It doesn't hurt when I'm not putting pressure on it, but it hurts when I walk on it or when I put pressure on it from the top of the foot. It feels kind of like I pulled a muscle in my foot, but I don't know how I would have done so. If I've been sitting for a while and get up to walk, it hurts a lot but if I walk for a while it starts to go away.
I have had foot pain for yrs...and was even operated on for tarsal tunnel, which I found later I did not have...it was the chiari... I had more of an electric shock feeling...static electricity....and the balls of my feet just hurt...and a lot of cramping in the arches of my feet as well...and I was always carrying extra shoes around thinking it was my shoes...I bought cheap ones, expensive ones, inserts...u name it I tried it... Not sure if this helps as all......
I thought it was machinery under the floor until I realized it was only in one foot. There is no pain or other symptom that I can relate to it. I am a white male, just turned 60. I was raised in New England and have been doing development work in SE Asia for the past 3 decades. I am overwieght at 220 lbs and 6 ft in height, but have lost 20 lbs over the last few months on a low carb diet with lots of fresh salads. I haven't had any significant health issues for quite a while.
My right leg is being spastic right now too so I'm wondering if this could be related to the other neuro symptoms or likely not... Any ideas? I'm gonna call my PCP later this week and get in. My legs feel so tired and heavy if I sit and pump my feet or something to try and relieve the pain. Then my legs burn... Whats going on? It feels like I ran a marathon barefoot! Please help! any advice is welcome.
My doctor told me he is ordering me a foot brass for when i sleep so it keeps my foot straight. so when i get up my foot won't hurt so much. at night ur foot bends i guess so when u get up putting it straight is what is making it hurt.
I am a foot drop sufferer. I have been a long-distance runner for years, and after a spinal injury, I was left with nerve damage resulting in permanent foot drop. I have tried every AFO, excercise, treatment, etc. that my orthotist could think of. I finally had to seek out answers on my own. (For the full version of my story if you have more interest, this is truly the nutshell version - http://****.blogspot.com/). I didn't want a bulky, sometimes painful AFO.
I was given some antivirals and some pain meds to combat the pain that came later. I had extremely bad pain coming from my back through my armpit and ending at my chest. The pain was so intense that my daughters hair brushing up against it made it burn. The weird part is that I never got the rash. Could this be the early treatment of antivirals? So moving forward to now I am still having the most awkward sensations of pain in my chest. Some days are worse than others.
I have had 2 bulging discs in my back for about 10 years now and had about 3 sciatica episodes all which went away in there own time, but in this particular time when i was bending over to put some paperwork into an envelope, the pain i experienced was different this time that i could hardly walk.
I used to think it was my kidneys and the pain was going after I had been to the bathroom, now I am not sure if the pain is going just because I am up and moving. I do not get the pain at all during the day.I have no other symptoms ( I dont think) I have had blood tests, urine tests and X rays all of which are OK. I would love to hear it anyone has any ideas what this could be as my Doctor has openly admitted he is stumped. Ta..........
I herniated my back in 2003, immediately had a drop foot, had surgery not long after for herniation of L5-S1 area, right after the surgery after I went home I had to be rushed to emergency room, because the pain running down my leg and foot was unbareable.
I had various leg pains off and on and finally a severe groin pain during a half marathon. Turned out I had a broken hip. Had surgery last week and now I can't run for 6 weeks or more. Now I'm a lot older than you, so probably you don't have anything like that, but you could have stress fractures and they take forever to heal. I know, I've had 5 of them. They take about 6 weeks to heal, but that's with no running. Can you bike instead?
All was good for about 2 months after the surgery. Then the pain started, after extensive rehab ie physio, exercise programme, and seeing a physolgist to learn how to live with the pain, Still no good. Accident Compensation in New Zealand then sent me to a specialist who medically cleared me to go back to work. Still in pain just coping some days at work. I was seeing a chiro whom I got short term relief. Then Accident Comp sent me to a rehab specialist who said I have permanent nerve damage.
I was training for the Portland Marathon, and my heel pain got so bad I would cry when my foot hit the ground in the morning. I went through the usual round of physical therapy (ultrasound, rest, ice, massage) but what HELPED was something called ASTYM. You have to go to a professional physical therapist who is trained in the ASTYM system. Basically the PT will use a tool to disrupt the old injury (they rub it on your foot and leg) and they give you a stretching and strengthening program.
Joint pain is a symptom of Hashi's. Synthroid treatment may alleviate the joint pain after a period of time. Although it is associated with thyroid disease, it could also mean other things, too, such as arthritis. I would have her get a bone density test or bone scan to make sure it is not something else.
Sometimes it doubles me over as I'm trying to run to the bathroom and other times its just kind of a dull pain. About 2 months after my surgery I had the same exact pain that sent me to the ER the day I had surgery. It wasnt as intense but I was afraid it was going to get worse and thought that I was going to have more of my intestines removed. It turned out to be nothing and eased up the same day. It was very scary after what I had been through.
I also have pain in my hip, lower back, lateral leg, foot and groin. This pain is all related to my diagnosis. Can you generally point to the exact location (one spot) of pain in your buttocks? The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is located in your buttocks or gluteal region. The sacroiliac joint lies next to the spine and connects the sacrum (the triangular bone at the bottom of the spine) with the pelvis (iliac crest). I have SIJ Dysfunction.
Immediately upon his first breakout he had severe lower back pain. He then suffered for three years with off and on back, leg, calf and foot pain. Finally, he complained of constant buttocks hamstring, calf and heel pain in both legs. After a battery of tests, nothing was found medically wrong with physiolocigally. It was finally suggested, since the patient was complaining of constant burning in his genitals, that he be put on a course of AntiVirals to rule out Herpes.
They say if you're going to Hyperstimulate you will do so a few days after retrieval. Well, my bloating, etc....just got worse and worse after retrieval. I really thought they were going to cancel my transfer. Luckily, it didn't get too bad, but progressively kept getting worse AFTER my transfer. It's been a rough week, BUT, yesterday I started feeling better. I've had more IVs and blood this week than everything else combined! I'm still having cramps, but they're definitely mild.
It is rare but I think as more and more women google seach pain after ablation it will not be as rare as they say it it. (1/2 to 1d%). Good luck, I hope all works out for you. As for me I will be having a total hysterectomy next month with hopes to save at least one ovary.
A few months ago I started running again after taking a year off. I used to run a lot and in fact completed a marathon. I have gained quite a bit of weight since but jumped back in a little too rigorously. After one of my longer runs I noticed my feet felt like they were on fire - I'd never experienced that before. I eased off on my running but it kept coming back getting a little better if I stopped and then coming back when I started again.
My knee pain began about 5 years ago after roller skating on a big ramp. At that time I was about 27 and thought I was still 15. After a week of repetitve bails from sometimes over 8-feet onto my poor knees ( I did wear protective gear:knee pads ect..) well, I got better at it, and fell less and less. A short time after while kneeling on the tile floor in my living-room I felt this pain for the first time.
This went on for about an hour and 15 mins. After a night in the hospital, and an Mri and other scans. I was released. I was told I should have no side effects. But now I have bad head aches on my left temple and I get a stabbing pain on my temple and neck, that last that last just several seconds. Also my speach has been effected slightly. Often I will be talking and a word will pop in a sentence where it doesnt belong, and I forget just what I want to say.
I too have a 2 1/2 year old complaining of back pain. I do have a Britax Marathon car seat but it is in our secondary car and is not the every day car seat. She was not complaining in that seat only in mine. Now we moved that seat (the Britax) into my car and she now complains in that one as well. She screams out in pain in complete hysterics. She has also been having horrible trouble sleeping. We put her to sleep and she stays up to all hours of the night.
Can you talk to your physical therapist & explain your frustration or ask how to correct the exercises? Mine watched me & I had to go back in a couple times to follow up. Carson was almost 2 when I finally went to one after talking to my Dr about how bad it still was. My PT also has some tools to use to measure the strength etc.
My wife has severe spasticity in her left arm and left leg (mostly in the hand and foot). This is accompanied by severe pain in her neck/back and severe pain throughout left side when attempting to move. She is a soldier with the US Army and they have been unable to find a cause for the condition. The most recent MRI shows "moderate central canal stenosis athe the C5-C6 level without significant neural foraminal narrowing.
So for what it is worth, I can trace my pain not to a mattress, not to my kidney function or other reasons - but specifically to doing 4 days of plank exercises with other basic exercises. I stopped the morning after noticing the pain but have still had it for the last 4 days, getting worse it seems each day - to the point that it takes all my effort to roll out of bed in the morning.
