Ouch how do I cure it?...
I went for a long run a few weeks back (just over 2hrs off road) and after I had a pain in the outside of my left foot, sort of if you traced back from the little toe, when you get to the outer edge next to the arch of the foot the pain happens there.
It doesn't hurt AT ALL to touch, bang, squeeze, poke etc
but it hurts when I walk
if I consciously shift the weight to take more on my inner foot that helps.
Rested for 2 weeks, pain went, ran today (1hr 44mins) and it's back
What does this sound like to you? and how can I treat it? cure it?...
Karen: Look up (a) fifth metatarsal stress fracture; (b) peroneal tendonitis . See if either of those fit your symptoms...
