Pain in the top of my foot
I cannot remember any trauma to my foot, but the top of my foot has been paining for about a week now. It has gotten worse too. Whenever I bend my foot in a certain may it hurts more (especially when I turn my toes up or when I walk). Lately, there even seems to be some pain in one area of my foot arch. The pain on the top of my foot is not easily stimulated when I touch my foot. Just when it moves. There is no redness or swelling apparent to me.
Please let me know what you think. I am wondering if I should immediately see someone about this, or should it get better on it's own.
My first thought would be tendonitis
which can occur without any history of trauma.
You can try warm soaks and anti-inflammatory medication (assuming you can tolerate it) for about a week. Try and avoid excessive activity and perhaps a rigid sole shoe would be helpful. Give it a week; if it does not improve appreciably , see a podiatrist.
