Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be a few possibilities.
This can be due to an inflammation of the joint or arthritis.
Gout is a common condition but your blood test was normal.
So gout is unlikely.
Tendinitis can cause pain in the foot.
Small crack or stress fracture is possible but it occurs more in the foot part or metatarsus.
But as X rays was good, fracture is not there.
You can continue to take antiinflammatory analgesics like advil or naproxen.
Please keep the foot at rest as much as possible.
If you do not feel improvement in 2-3 days, I would suggest to take a review by doctor.
Steroid shot can help.
You can apply warm, moist compress over there.
It will be soothing.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
