Left foot pain


I have had pain in my left foot for the last 3 weeks. Initially it started on the top of my foot half way between my toes and ankle between my 3rd and 4th toes. I now have pain in the ball of my foot that is painful to touch. There seems to be a small loose part that almost seems to click when touched. I still have mild pain on the top of my foot. The pain is worst in the mornings. I have been taking difene to see if this helps. It has a moderate effect on the pain. Any help would be appreciated

    Hello and thank you for the question. Without examining you it is difficult for me to say exactly what may be causing the pain. Do you feel the pain when walking? Is it worse when you are in shoes? Is there any associated tingling or numbness? All of these questions will help differentiate the cause of the pain. If you have not seen a Podiatrist, I recommend having a full foot exam to rule out possible causes of pain including neuroma, stress fractures or capsulitis. If you haven’t done any stretching, icing, anti-inflammatories I would recommend starting these initial treatment as well. Good luck!
