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!

    I am having really bad pain in the top right area on my right foot when I walk. Standing seems ok. I finally got relief from plantar in the same foot and now this. It totally feels like it might feel if I had broken bones in that foot. Very painful and hard to walk. I’m so frustrated and don’t know what to do. I’ve seen a podiatrist who tells me to keep stretching. I actually think some of these exercises making it worse. Would something like cold laser therapy help my problem? I’m at my wits end with this I stand most of my day at work which is getting more difficult to do. Could I have broken bones in there and not know it?
