Foot pain along outside of left foot

Since saturday evening I have been struggling with sharp pain in my left foot that only hurts when I walk. Once I sit down there is no throbbing pain and after sitting when I get up to walk everything is fine for 15 steps and then gradually the pain comes back until I am limping a little. There is no visible swelling so I am quite perplexed.

Now it is Monday and the pain is the same if not more pronounced than Saturday. For back ground I ran a 5K road race on Sat. morning and did the shuttle sprint CFFB wod in the afternoon. Also once more note, I have a faint red bruise (the size of a child's band-aid, odd that it is red and not purple) right above the injured area. I have circled the injured area and crudely drawn the bruising since I can't photograph right now. Picture is not my foot but taken off of Google.

Re: Foot pain along outside of left foot

Get yourself to a doc to get some X-rays.. may have stress fractured something. The fact that the pain hasn't gotten better and is likely worse is definitely a reason to see a doc.

If you do that and it's not the case then it's soft tissue in which case we'll go from there. Your doc will probably give you some options if something else is wrong like subluxation or whatever

Re: Foot pain along outside of left foot

Thanks, Steven. I will sleep on it and probably call the doctor tomorrow if I wake up with the same pain. I appreciate you dropping a note, ultimately I guess having an x-ray will let me know one way or the other.

Re: Foot pain along outside of left foot

Hi there,

I have same problem - some research suggested it was this ...

http://www.sportsinjuryclinic.net/cy...neusbrevis.htm

Physio confirmed it.

The following link suggests some help for it in the future

http://www.fullturnfitness.com/?q=co...eroneus-longus

On the plus side, although I can hardly walk, I did complete my first Fran last night with no discernible side effects. If anything it has improved overnight.

All the best

Phil

Re: Foot pain along outside of left foot

Brent,

What ended up happening with the pain in your left foot? I have the exact same symptoms after running a 5k on Monday. The pain started occuring on Wednesday and although it is not getting worse, it is not getting better.

I'm debating on calling a doctor, but don't want to waste the time/money if I am just going to hear that I need to stay off my feet.

Re: Foot pain along outside of left foot

As Phil said, it can be peroneus brevis inserts into the tubercle of the 5th metatarsal...

Though you don't know whether it's tendonitis, or apophysitis, or stress fracture or anything else in the area.

You can try rest and see if it helps. But if it doesn't significantly go away after you rest and start to ramp up back into activity it likely is a good idea to see a doc.
