Metatarsal pain

Post  fostever on Tue Feb 26, 2013 10:20 pm

I have been noticing on my left foot around my second metatarsal an annoying discomfort associated with what I thought was a shoe issue. It's kind of a benign pain that goes away after running for a while. I though it was a certain pair of shoes, but it has varying levels of discomfort depending on the shoes, but is still present regardless of which ones. I decided to poke around and it hurts a lot when putting pressure between the metatarsals, like on the sides. I looked up stress fractures and did a test where you bend the toes forward to expose the ends of the metatarsals then press on each one of those. This produces little or no pain. Also did the hop test and it was fine. It's very annoying and may be progressing. This could be associated with the foot sprain I incurred in November. Anyone ever had anything like this?

To me, it's two fixes:

1. Stay one instead of half size bigger with my training shoes.
2. Stay away from New Balance 904.

It's quite possibly related to the foot sprain. You could still have some inflammation in there. I had a bad sprain with annoying pain/irritation that lasted long after the main injury healed. Talk to a podiatrist if it doesn't go away.

Take a look at some information on Nueroma's (specifically Morton's Nueroma). It's something I've been dealing with for a few years now. It's a pain (literally and figuratively).

I had a Mortons neuroma and some tendonits in the same area from Irish Dance years ago and agree that it could maybe be that. Mine eventually went away after I got some cortisone shots and switched to wider shoes, although in Irish dance the shoes are always very tight. I was told that tight shoes are a big cause of Morton's neuroma. .

Yeah, the symptoms they describe for this is more like a feeling of a rock on the bottom of the foot. Mine is on the top. I may need to see a podiatrist.

Seeing someone is the best idea. My neuroma actually hurt on the top instead of the bottom, which made it more difficult for them to diagnose because I had atypical symptoms. But there are all sorts of things that can be going on in that area with a neuroma being just one of many possibilities .
