Knot behind ball of foot with some discoloration. What could it be?
So this morning I was up and about for half an hour, then took a trip to the bathroom and noticed a sharp pain in my foot.
Went over to the couch to inspect the area and found a tender, painful to the touch knot behind the ball of my foot. I don't think I stressed my foot anymore than usual - although I was walking in a downtown area on vacation for a couple days this past week, which is still less strenous than my normal daily exercise routine.
There was no discoloration at first, only noticed it later in the day. Could this be some kind of burst blood vessel or something? Everything else I could find that involved a small knot in this area of the foot included things like plantar fibromas to ledderhose disease to morton's neuromas; I'm reasonably certain I have none of those things.
Any ideas? Blood clot? Normally I just shrug things off (like any dumbass 28 year old that still thinks he can just walk it off), but if it could be a blood clot then I suppose that would be cause for concern.
