Anyone know what this would be? Yesterday when i woke up i had some kind of tender lump on the bottom of the arch of my left foot. You cant see it but I could feel it. By last night my whole foot swelled up. Now its getting worse. It was just hurting when I walked on it; now its hurting just sitting. Not sure if its related but on the side of my ankle i've had a lump on their for about a month then it went away. Any suggestions.
Hi--any redness involved? Ever had any problems with any joints?

Maybe a slight red where the lump was. No i've never had any problems with my joints.

Sounds like an attack of tendinosis--tendon inflammation. But, that said, it could be a sign of rheumatoid arthritis so I'd suggest you have a doctor take a look.
