Hi my name is Ahsan, I’m an 18 year old medical student and a weight lifter. I regularly do dead lifts and leg strengthening exercises. On leg day I did the exercise of calf raises. This is a mixture of high repetitions of dorsiflexion and plantarflexion of the foot. I wasn’t wearing proper footwear and after the workout I had a sudden onset of pain between the 1st and 2nd metatarsal joints. I ditched the shoes but for the past week after moderate lengths of walking I still experience an annoying (slight but noticeable) pain in the area. I want to continue weightlifting but haven’t continued because of the pain. I don’t want the condition to worsen, or have it develop into a chronic condition. What do I do? Orthotics? Proper weightlifting shoes? Getting an MRI here in Canada is practically impossible for 6 months. Please advise! Thanks.
