Pain on top of foot

07/07/2009

Question:

I have had pain on the top of my foot for about 2 1/2 mos. It is stiff in the morning, when I set for long periods of time and when I wear running shoes. I can`t run but I can bike because I`m not putting weight on the foot. Can you diagnose this problem and tell me how to treat it.

Answer:

There are several possible reasons for the symptoms you have described, none of which can be accurately diagnosed without an examination. These can include traumatic, structural and metabolic. I would suggest an examination by a podiatrist or other foot care specialist for an accurate diagnosis and recommendations for treatment.
