pain in bottom and side of foot worsens during day

Posted by Bob S on 10/07/03 at 22:55 (132737)

Any ideas on pain in the arch and side of left foot- off and on for several months. It flairs, then recedes for a few days. Although there is some stiffness in the morning the pain gets progressivley worse as the day continues and activities wear on. By night it is throbbing.

Bob S. ~ I'm sorry you haven't gotten a response to your question and am sure that you will soon from people who might be able to give you some feedback on your problem. I don't know if you are a new visitor to this site, but in case you are and while you are waiting for an informed response, you might want to go to the first 'page' here and read Scott's Heel Pain book - it's free and easy to access here and might give you some information you need. You might also do a search on this website, as well as on search engines, for Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis or Foot Pain, Foot Problems and the like. YOu will get lots of information here by doing that as well as through the internet. The difference here is that people have lots of experience and knowledge on the subjects, whereas on the wider internet, some may be terrific and some may not be so it can be more hit and miss. Good luck and thanks for joining in here. You can find lots of good help here.

Bob:

Instability of the midfoot which is supported by the plantar fascia can cause this type of problem. Have you had this checked out by a foot specialist?
