Pain around cuneiform, metatarsal, and navicular bone

I felt some discomfort around the cuneiform bone on one of my feet. In terms of discomfort level it was low (2 or 3 out of ten) i continued to walk around. Yesterday, the pain was slightly more frequent and only when I applie weight andwalked around. Today, the area around all three bones hurts. I have rested, elevated, iced the area which alleviated some pain. It is a bit swelled up and the discomfort is at a 5 or 6 out of ten when at rest but a 7 or 8 when I walk around.


There is a bit of swelling around the cuneiform. It is a bit painful when I apply pressure to the top of the area around it. I am still icing it (on and off) but the pain is still there and starts to feel a little bit more like throbbing pain.


Thank you for your question. Without examining you it is difficult for me to accurately diagnosis what may be causing your foot pain. I recommend seeing a Podiatrist who can more accurately assess and evaluate your foot. In the mean time I would minimize your activity and control any inflammation or swelling to the area. Good luck!
