I have been having a lot of pain on the side of my left foot near my pinky toe but on the side of my foot on my bone and I don't know what it could be. When I apply preasure to it and squeeze my foot with my hand it kind of eases the pain a little bit but it just come right back. Does anyone know what this could be or what is causing this??
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to tell. Possibilities include injuries to tendons/ ligaments, fractures, growths/ masses/ spurs, infections, inflammations, degenerations, nerve compression/ impingement etc; though injuries and inflammations tend to get worse wit pressure application. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile you may try some tylenol or NSAIDS for pain relief.
Hope this helps.
