Where on your foot is the pain?
Hi Dr Jef,
Left middle side on the arch and in the bone of the big toe.
Is the pain on the dorsal ( upper ) or plantar ( lower ) surface?
Any swelling of the joint there?
Can I ask what sort of distances you run?
Sorry about the delay in getting back to you.
I had a patient to see!
It can be difficult to give an accurate answer without being able to do an exam - however I suspect that you have metatarsalgia.
I will post you a link about this.
If you are able try see a sports injury dr , orthopedic surgeon or even visit a biomechanics clinic - all can do the appropriate exam and make the diagnosis.
