#1: Advice for foot pain? Update
I'm hoping of you ladies (or gents) know what this is and know a way to deal with it. The past few weeks, every once in a while something toward the front of my foot, upper middle-ish, would shift or pop or do something, and it would hurt to walk on it for a few minutes. Today, I woke up with the pain and can't walk regularly at all. I can walk on the side of my foot, but when I step on the ball of my foot and step into my toes, there's a shooting pain in that same spot--it doesn't go into my toes, just that part of the foot and up toward my ankle. I can move my foot without a problem, all my toes, my ankle, I can touch my foot, but if I press into my hand with the ball of my foot, into my toes, oh boy. If I can avoid a doctor, that'd be nice, since I have two exams in the next two days and two articles due this week, and I'm going home Wednesday. Of course I'd injure myself without having a clue how.
