    Tendon pain across top of the foot?

    I've been having pain on the top of my right foot. It seems to always be there, and it feels like I can't stretch my foot out. Sometimes it feels like a cramp, but it is always very tight. There is no swelling or redness, though there is a little burning sensation at times. Does anyone know what this is?

    Hi there, Cindy -

     

    I know this is a very old question, but I wondered if you'd found out what was wrong with your foot? If so, perhaps you could return and tell us what your doctors said or how you treated the pain yourself. It might be really helpful to someone else in the community who is experiencing the same thing! It sounds like you might be suffering from some kind of nerve impingement or a problem with your arches that's causing pain in your foot. I'm only a layperson though and not a doctor, so I'm just guessing.  I'd be interested to hear what you found out.

     

    Here are some links that might be helpful to you, in any case.  I hope this is much better now!

    That was one of my foot symptoms. It ended up being osteoarthritis. I just had fusion surgery done as well as 2 tendons repaired on my left foot. The osteoarthritis symptoms were sharp pain on the top of my foot when I walked. I always felt the need to stretch it. I am still recovering from the surgery. It's been a little less then a month with at least 2 more months to go before I can return to work. Extremely painful . Good luck with you foot. READ MORE

      Update to my recovery. Found out I will have at least 4 more months of recovery time before returning to work. I think it is due to the tendon surgery more then the fusion surgery. Not sure. READ MORE
