Post Pain on TOP of right foot

For several years, my right foot has been giving me problems. I have had sporatic pain in the foot but it seems to be more frequent and for longer periods of time. It feels as though something has been dropped on top of the foot and it feels badly bruised. It hurts when I walk or stand on it and there is no pain when I am sitting. I try to rub my foot but it doesn't seem to help - have used a heating pad. No help there either. Pain is deep within the foot. I have arthritis in my knee and wrist and am on Advil daily for the pain and yet it doesn't touch the pain in my foot. I of course thought about going to my Ortho. Surgeon or a podiatrist for help but decided to post topic here. What can a doctor do but prescribe medication, which I am already on or recommend surgery? Many are knife happy!!! Any advice? Thank you

Re: Pain on TOP of right foot

Hi Norma: Your right foot pain sounds very much like what I've experienced for over a year. I finally went to the Ortho Surgeon, had x-rays, and it was determined to be acute osteo-arthritis. I'm going in for extensive surgery on my left foot (June 8) to remove bunion and total reconstruction - will be non weight bearing about 2 months. When I recover from this one, I'll be up for second surgery on right foot. Trying to determine which foot to have done first was very difficult. I do know this will just get worse, but thankfully there is corrective surgical procedures to repair osteo arthritis. Check out a few of my threads/post and you will see the similiarities. Good luck to you.

Re: Pain on TOP of right foot

I have that - in my case it's the tendons being strained in my foot.

Re: Pain on TOP of right foot

I had pain on top of area where shoelaces get tied. First I thought I tied them too tight. After 2 weeks of soreness/tenderness I went to foot doctor. He said I had a bone spur and that my arch had dropped. Suggested I wear an orthotic (had a store bought one since I had arch problems in past)to build up arch for 2 weeks and see what happened. If after 2 weeks, pain was still there, wanted me to have x-ray. It's been about 1-1/2 weeks and pain is almost totally gone. He also said I have a little arthritis in my big toe.
