pain when walking

Hi, for a couple weeks I have had mild foot pain. On Sunday I did a lot of walking and now my foot is in terrible pain. I tend to walk on the outside of my foot. When I walk normally, I have a pain form the middle of my foot to the end of my pinky toe. It almost feels like a mix of walking on gravel and the pushing of bones together. When I try to walk on the whole bottom of my foot, how have pain in the arch of my right foot that feels like the muscle/tendon there is pulling apart. It hurts when I am barefoot and wearing any shoes that don’t form to my foot. I was wondering if it is something I need to go to the doctor about.

    Thank you for your question. Without examining you it is difficult for me to say exactly what may be causing your pain. Many causes of foot pain are due to excessive stress placed on the soft tissue. Often times rest, ice, proper footwear, anti-inflammatories and stretching the feet and ankles will provide initial relief. If your pain persists after a period of rest and inflammation control, then I would see a Podiatrist who can better evaluate you and determine specifically which soft tissue may be inflamed.

    Good luck!
