When I step and flex my right foot, I feel sharp pain around

This answer was rated:

When I step and flex my right foot, I feel sharp pain around the arch. It hurts to go on my toes, but feels fine standing still. I slightly pressed each area on my foot and there was no pain. I can rotate my ankle with no problems. It started yesterday when I was walking to a friend house and it just got worse with each step. I'm not a runner or a swimmer, but I do march in marching band twice a week. But, balmy foot started hurting a week after the last practice.
Welcome to Just Answer.
Do you feel any swelling there?
Did you get any injury while going to friend house?
Thank you.

No swelling and I don't bealive I injured my foot along the way.
Thank you for the information,
There can be a few causes here.
This can occur from a strain to ligaments.
Other causes can be due to inflammation of fascia, stress fracture etc.
I would advise you to have an examination by doctor & have some tests like X ray if the doctor thinks necessary after examination.
Application of ice can be helpful.
Please do not apply directly.
Apply after wrapping in a towel & not more than 10-15 min at a time.
If the pain is much, pain medicine like ibuprofen can be taken in the absence of contraindication.
You need to take it after food to avoid irritation of stomach.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
