Title: Can somebody help me identify this pain?
Post by: Adam McC on August 05, 2010, 04:13:24 PM
While jogging, I've recently been experiencing some sharp pain in my foot. Its difficult to describe, but I'll be as exact as possible. When I jog, after about 20 minutes of going, the pain becomes very sharp and distinctive, to the point of being impossible to ignore. The pain is on the outside of my foot, on the top and on the side. If I had to point to it, I'd be pointing at the Cuboid region.

In the past, I've felt a dull ache there, but bypassed it. It has now moved from a dull ache to real pain, so I can't ignore it any more. Does anybody have idea what kind of pain I'm experiencing? I'm utterly confused. I've never felt this kind of pain.

Also, I've never injured this ankle, past little twists that last no more than a day. No sprains or breaks. At this point, if I roll my ankle all the way over the outside as far as it goes, I begin to feel the pain.

Any ideas?

Let me know if you need any additional information

Very likely a cuboid subluxation.  Or sprain of one of the nearby ligaments.  See a chiro who specializes in sports.

That sounds a little odd. There's no discoloration, inflammation, or anything along those lines?

My suggestion would be to rest your foot for a few days to see how it progresses. It could be serious but I doubt it, or else the pain would be more prominent.

It might be a stress fracture :o or an enthesopathy (stress where the tenden meets the bone)
