I recently ran a half marathon and at mile 2 I felt a pinch near the top of my foot above the arch. I figured it was a cramp and would work itself out. By the end of the race, my foot was in a lot of pain and I couldn’t wait to take my shoes off. Eventually, the pain subsided and I didn’t think about it again until two days later when I went for a run. After about the first mile, there was a sharp pain shooting through the top and side of my foot above the arch. I rested it and tried to run the following day, with the same result. There is virtually no pain except when I run. I am deliberating about seeing an orthopedist, but don’t want to make the visit needlessly. Wondering how long I should rest and “wait and see” before scheduling an appointment.
