Since finishing a run, two days ago, I have had a lot of pain in my left foot. It hurts to put weight on it. On further examination, it is very tender on the outermost aspect of my left foot just at the back of the arch and I can feel a small, pea sized lump just under the skin, which is what is painful.
It doesn't hurt to stretch my foot in any direction, nor to stretch my calf muscle. It is only tender when I put pressure on it by either trying to walk, or prodding it with My fingers. It also doesn't improve as the day goes on
I don't think it's plantar fasciitis - it's too far out towards the very edge of my foot, and it's only the lump which hurts - there's nothing more diffuse. If I press where my plantar fascia should be, it doesn't hurt
Any ideas what it might be and what I can do to make it better? Many thanks
