I have been having pain in the top of my foot for about 1 year. I have had x-ray’s and 1 MRI and results show nothing but inflammation at the top of the 4th metatarsal. I have pain around the top of the 3rd and 4th metatarsal. I am in the military and I run a lot, but the pain has been bad enough that I am having a hard time running. I had surgery last year in the same area to remove a bone spur. My doctor thought it might be the issue.
The pain has since come back and gotten increasingly worse. The more I run the worse the pain is. My foot will go numb when I run, but hours later my foot is painful to even walk on. I take 800mg of ibuprofen to help with the pain, but it hasn’t resolved my pain. Any ideas on what to ask my doctor about?
