On Saturday, during a long run my foot seemed to have been cramping. I ran a mile on that cramp. After the run the cramp didn't seem to go away. The next morning it still seemed to hurt, and of course against my better judgment, I decided to go and try a 7 mile run. My foot had the same feeling as the day before, but less intense. I got to around 2.8 miles and my foot began to hurt so bad that I had to hop.
The pain is located on the bottom of my foot between the Cuboid and the Calcaneous. No pain when pushing in that location, even when pushing hard. There appears to be no swelling and no pain on the side of the foot. Pain only seems to occur while pushing off during walking and running. However, at times while rocking the foot laterally there seems to be some pain. If I stand on something that pushing into this region there is extreme pain. From what I read, I have ruled out Cuboid Sydrome, Peritoneal Tendinitis, and PF. Mostly, because there is no pain on the side of the foot and no swelling. Additionally, the pain is not worse in the morning. But, what do I know; I am not an MD. Unfortunately, I am uninsured. At this point, I was hoping that maybe someone could give me a suggestion of any other condition it could be.
Barefoot and happy
Sounds like either a bruise or a sprain. In either case the advice is the same, rest it until it stops hurting.
