Top of foot pain injuries

Common Questions and Answers about Top of foot pain injuries


Avatar n tn As there is very little soft tissue to protect the top of the foot, bone injuries are common. The second, third and fourth Metatarsals are the most commonly injured bones due to something falling on your foot. Without any fracture you would need physiotherapy and anti inflammatory medications to decrease the pain and inflammation. I would also suggest you to wear proper footwear. Take care!
Avatar m tn I had an x-ray and nothing was broken. I have had severe pain on the top of my foot from the two toes next to the smallest toe up to the ankle, also pain in the lower arch area that will run up on to my ankle to the lower ball of the big toe.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a pain in my right foot. It is on the top of my foot and only last a few seconds then goes away. Seems to happen most when I am relaxed or laying down. I can't recall any injuries, there is no bruising and does not hurt to touch or press. It is quite painful while it's happening and has been going on for the last 3 days. Does anyone know what this might be or how I can stop it from happening?
Avatar f tn my left foot wil randomly like cramp up when i try to take a step but its not like a muscle pain it hurts in the bones on top of my foot and my ankle its a horrible sudden pain but after it happens my foot stays "locked up" like this for 1-3 days and its hard to walk its almost as if my foot is stuck arched up and it feels like if i put all my weight on it the bones on the top of my foot will break!
Avatar n tn None of the mentioned causes would cause pain on the top side of the foot. Possible causes that may need to be considered include fractures, ligament/ tendon injuries, infections, inflammations, spur formation etc. It is advised to consult an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile it is advised to rest the foot and avoid weight bearing. You could also use some OTC NSAIDS for pain relief. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn For about a week now I've been experiencing pain in my left foot. My big toe also seems to be tilting and slightly crossing the smaller toes. The toe does not bend at all. The pain in my foot is mostly along the top and the arch. What could be causing this? I don't get much relief from the pain because as long as I'm putting weight on it, it hurts even in the morning after not being on it all night. Thank you for any and all advice.
Avatar n tn I have had ball of foot pain for years! What kind of damage can you do to the ball of your foot that would hurt this long and even effect my big toe especially but all of my toes? The bottom or ball is what kills me! I can't weight bear on the ball of my foot? I hope I can get any help from anyone? I have had several old injuries. One being kicking a steel door several time many of years ago! also having something fall or hit the top of my foot that was pretty heavy!
Avatar f tn Three weeks ago while on vacation in the evening after a day in the ocean and walking on the boardwalk the top of my foot started to hurt in a small localized area. It is not continuous but the pain ranges anywhere from a dull ache to severe shooting pain. I'm at the point where I'm wondering if I did something to it and any advice on what it might be would be appreciated. It is not bad all the time, but I'm at the point where I'm wondering if I should seek treatment.
Avatar n tn Well about 2 days later woke up and i couldnt move my thumb and was in alot of pain. Another 3 days pass and my left side of my jaw hurts. The foot and thumb are also both on left side, icing them down doesnt help, heat doesnt really help much either. Since i have been to the Dr. once already and they were obviously wrong, i would like to see if anybody here could possibly help m narrow it down before i go back. I have missed 3 weeks of work due to this problem.
Avatar m tn On my left foot, I have pain on the outer side of the ankle, but it feels like it is more inside the foot. If I were to sit still, loosen my foot, and then roll the heel towards the inside, I have a very sharp pain. I have had this for about a year now. There are times after I play a sport that it feels fine, and other times when it hurts to walk. There is no tenderness. None of my injuries are swollen. If you need help with my descriptions I can add to them. Thank you.
Avatar n tn feels like needles being stuck in it.Lot of pain on top of foot too. any idea's can't afford to go to doctor. emergency bills bad enough. No job had to cancel insurance when it got to $629.00 month.
Avatar f tn at first toes were really red and some blue in color and whole foot felt a bit numb after the first strike of pain after resting and catching my breath my foot started hurting on the top mid section but mostly towards the outer side and I one spot that if touched feels like a tigger point of the pain...I iced whole foot and put it up over night but when I put my foot up after a bit gets really painful...enough that it woke me up and I could not sleep..
Avatar m tn This pain is just a few inches above the big toe knuckle. It's been a couple weeks with this pain in the foot. Walking barefoot in my house i feel no pain unless i press on the area then i feel a mass amount even with painkillers. If i have my cleats or runners on i feel pain all the time. I think im defiantly to young for falling arches...
Avatar f tn Two days ago I had a nagging pain in my right foot where my big toe meets my foot that circles around to the back of the joint down my arch and up the top to my ankle and up my calf to the back of my knee. Yesterday it worsened when I was unable to walk at all. I thought I might have broke it so I went to the er. The doctor was extremely rude. He told me after one xray view that it was a bone island I had it all my life and I just need to take some aspirin and I'd be fine.
Avatar f tn All said, if it keeps on aching, you might want to have an ortho look at it and of course bring it to the attention of your medical team.
Avatar m tn Severe pain that changes from foot to leg and is random, lots of tingling, general ache around top center of foot, lots of twitching, foot feels swollen when wearing a shoe, and toe in general looks darker red/purple. I did have an ingrown toenail in the big toe removed a few months ago but I don't think that is relevant. If you could please help me I would appreciate it.
Avatar m tn Hi there! Well, without an evaluation, it would be difficult to determine the cause of your pain. Possibilities that may need to be considered include fractures, ligament/ tendon injuries, infections, inflammations like fasciitis, spur formation/ degeneration etc. It is advised to consult an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile it is advised to rest the foot and limit weight bearing. You could also use some tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS for pain relief.
Avatar f tn I have over the last 2 months been having this shooting and constant pain in the top part of my right foot, I have tried writing it off as nothing or as a problem caused by my weight but it makes it hard to keep going sometimes. I don`t have arches in my feet and my ankles are stiff, I have had the muscle in the same foot collapse a few years ago. the problem is made worse with constant activity, (on my feet for good part of the day usually).
Avatar n tn I think i have a stress fracture on my left foot kind of under the big toe (ball of the foot) that hasn't gone away since last November. Not only that, but on the top of my left foot when i flex it hurts and it might be another stress fracture so i'm told, and a left leg pain-i don't know if it's a shin splint because it's higher up, but it hurts when i run on it.
Avatar n tn A few days ago my boyfriend was being romantic and was stroking my hair when all of a sudden the top of my head felt like he took a bat to me. I let out a scream and grabbed my head and that is when I noticed an indentation on my head. The whole area was so sensitive that just moving the hair was painful. At first I thought it was because I was wearing a hair band, but it is now 4 days later and the indentation is still there and it is still sensitive, especially in the center.
Avatar f tn Its been a few years where the pain has been like tiny pieces of glass under my skin not after a few years it seems to be starting to radiate from the top of my foot to pain at the ankle and going up the calf to knee not just foot pain any more; almost like an achy toothache from the top of my foot slowly going up to the ankle to calf to knee to right hip at its worst several times a day?
Avatar n tn he didnt even bother xraying it or anything. it looks like there is an indentation on the top of her foot (its in the bone, not just from the swelling) and you can clearly feel a bone that is lower on the ball of one of her toes directly under "the dent.

Avatar n tn Shoes that are tied too tightly may cause pain and bruising on the top of the foot. You may want to try resting your foot and elevation to help heal and prevent further injuries. In addition, to that try an ice pack for a few minutes. There are two types of over-the-counter medications that may help with the pain and swelling of foot pain.
Avatar n tn This just started happening in my left foot in the last couple of days. I am a 40 yr old mom of 3, extremely active, working out 3-4 times a week. This intermittent vibrating in my foot is very unnerving. Have you got any answers? Nothing hurts... so, it is hard for me to think it is a back problem.
Avatar n tn The inside and outside of the foot also became bruised, I got an X-Ray and the shin was not fractured. Now, 2 1/2 weeks later the top of my foot, and front of my ankle has a sharp pain whenever I walk, and my toes have begun to twitch. Do you have any idea what could be causing this sharp, shooting foot pain?
Avatar f tn 1) Pain on the top of the foot between mets 3 and 4. Doctor believes there a possible morton’s neuroma and treated with a shot to the nerve 3 months ago. I did experience some relief, and time will tell if that pain comes back. 2) Pain on the bottom of the foot / metatarsal pad between mets 3 and 5. The most pain comes from trying to walk in a normal fashion; I simply cannot 'roll' my foot because the pain on the metatarsal pad is too great (replicated by trying to stand on tip toes).
