Pain on top of foot



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.


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.
