pain in my right foot only when pressure is put on it

I have pain in my right foot only when I put pressure on it. Its in the region of the navicular bone. It shoots sharp pain when I step on it just right. There is no swelling that I can see. But im on my feet on night at work for 12 hours straight and I have to limp or walk on the outside of my foor to avoid the pain. What do you think it is?

    Hello and thank you for your question. Sounds like you may be experiencing some posterior tibial tendonitis.

    We use our posterior tibial tendon when we stand and walk, so if your job requires long hours on your feet this may explain the foot pain. I recommend icing the area or taking anti-inflammatories, as well as wearing supportive shoes and stretching your calves.

    If you have not seen a Podiatrist I recommend making an appointment to get a full biomechanical exam. You may benefit from orthotics which will support your foot when you’re standing for long hours.

    I hope this helps.
