Foot pain that won't go away

Posted by Jason J on 2/23/03 at 20:10 (110546)

I have been experiencing pain in the Outer Longitudinal Arch of my left foot for months. I've gone for xrays, and they showed no bone problems. When I flex my foot I feel pain, but if I flex it long enough the pain goes away temporarily. Any ideas as to what's going on, and how I might treat it?

Thanks.

It might be a calcaneal- cuboid problem. Manipulation with taping, usually resolves this problem. This is an off the top opinion . Can you give us more information. How, why etc and maybe I can give you a better opinion. but this is what i think off the top of my opinion head

I'm not sure how it happened. I'm a runner, and I think I might have injured my foot wearing shoes that just weren't right for me. The pain is along the fifth metatarsal. Since xrays didn't show a fracture, maybe it's a tendon problem?

The peroneal brevis and longus tendon are in that area
