I have had a small bunion on my right foot since childhood (probably from wearing hand me down shoes). I haven’t had any trouble with it until recently. I am now 41 and I have noticed that when I walk around the yard or stand for a period of time, I have burning pain through the top of my foot. I have also noticed a painful bump that has grown at the base of my Achilles tendon over the past month. It is very sensitive to the touch and anti-inflammatories aren’t helping. The pain pretty much started when this lump showed up.
I do not wear heels or tight fitting shoes. Most of the time, I am barefoot or in tennis shoes.
I don’t want to go to the doctor for un-necessary test if there is something at home I can try first.
Thanks for the help.
