I've had pain on the top of my foot - between my ankle and toes - and my foot is swollen. I did not injure it; I just went to bed and woke up the next morning with pain. I'm unable to put pressure on it. Any idea what I could have done to it?
Hi there, Dolores -
I know this is a very old question, but I wondered what ever happened with your foot? It sounds like you might have had a muscle cramp that made your foot seize up over night, but I'm only a layperson and can't diagnose the problem, of course. If you did find an answer, perhaps you could post it here so that someone else who has the same symptoms could be helped by your experience!
Here are some articles on foot pain that you might find useful:

I too have had this problem. I went to a podiatrist about it. Come to find out, it was Osteoarthritis also in my foot. I was given two option, an ankle fusion, which would put pressure on the knee, or an orthodic shoe insert. I went with the insert. It helped tremendously. No more top of the foot pain.
I also invested in a pair of New Balance sneakers, didn't use the insert, and have had no foot pain since.
Thanks for your post. Could you please clarify what your question is? This will help us answer it better! Thanks!
I've had the exact same problem as you, and I don't know what to do... I really wouldn't like to over react, I hope this isn't important at all.
However, it id really weird. I have migraines, and for the last 10 days (approximately) I've been sitting at home, resting, because of that. One day, I went to bed and woke up the next morning with my left foot aching quite a lot, along the outer lateral zone and behind that little ball-shaped bone on the ankle.
During the day, the pain relieved and I could walk normally. At night, when I was preparing to go to bed, it started aching so much that I walked with a limp and it kept aching every time I turned in bed. In the morning, which is today, I woke up and simply couldn't put my foot on the floor because it caused such pain. Almost any movment would cause pain, frankly.
Now I have to sit on the couch again, not because of migraine anymore, but because of my aching foot instead!
Oh, and I forgot to mention that today it is pretty swollen.
Thank you for reading!
