Saturday morning I got up and stepped out of bed, I immediately crumbled to the floor. The pain in my left foot was so intense I just collapsed. I gave it a good examination and with no visible swelling or bruising I figured I hit a nerve wrong or something..Pulled myself up and attempted to step on it again. The pain was still there, not as intense but still nagging me. All day it hurt, same with Sunday. It was more of a dull pain. This morning I thought I should attempt a run, it started out ok, I was in a little bit of pain but nothing major. By the middle of it I was in tears and limping. I limped back for what seemed like forever. I now cannot put any pressure on my foot. It's just in an odd spot and I can't figure out what the heck is wrong. It's only on the outside of my left foot, not as far down as my heel, but it wraps underneath my foot. It's almost as if I can handle putting my weight on it if I'm shifting to the inside of my foot only. I used to have plantar fasciitis and this is not anything like that. I had it so bad at one point I had to have cortisone injections in the arch and heel of both feet, this was five years ago and I've not had problems since then. What's even more strange is that if I stay off of it for a little bit it gets better but the second I start to really walk around (or start running) it really gets bad and I can't put pressure on it anymore.
Suggestions? Ideas? I'm so bummed, was supposed to run a 5k on Saturday and I don't know that it's going to be a possibility now..
