I recently started having pain on the top of my foot when walking. The pain is mostly between the big and second toes and runs from the second toe down the top of my foot towards my ankle. It hurts only when walking (when actually bending my foot to take a step). If I press on the area between my big and second toes(about an inch from the toe joint) it feels like it’s bruised. There is no swelling or discoloration. Occasionally I also get pain on the side of my leg (between shin and calf) when walking.
I wear custom orthotics to treat a collapsing arch. The orthotic is only about 6 months old. I usually wear running shoes which are about 3 months old. The pain started while I was sick and not exercising. Any thoughts on what this could be?
