Sharp Shooting Pain - Top of right foot

Evening all,

I have a sharp shooting pain in my right foot, kind of on top but towards the outside edge of the foot. I can trace it back to starting just after a half marathon I completed late October.

I usually only run 20 ish km per week over 3 runs and have continued to do so. When I have footwear on the pain is not there.....It's worse when i have no shoes on and I am walking around the flat.

Has anyone experienced anything similar?


  • A possibility... look up cuboid syndrome - caused by the cuboid bone getting slightly out of alignment and hitting a nerve.
  • have you took any x-ray, I had exactly the same for almost 2 months, negotiated my sleep due to the sharp painful shooting pain, taking x-ray it showed my 2nd metatarsal was broken.
