I HAVE A SHARP PULLING PAIN ON THE OUTSIDE OF BOTH SIDES OF MY FEET. IF I MOVE THEM MY MEET TOWARDS THE INSIDE IT IS VERY PAINFUL. I HAVE FOUND THAT IF I MOVE THEM SLOWLY (FEELS ALMOST LIKE STRETCHING A SORE MUSCLE IT FEELS BETTER.
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THIS IS AND WHAT I CAN DO ABOUT IT?
Sounds like your referring to the Tuberosity of the 5th Metatarsal (Pinky Toe). There is indeed a muscle that inserts here called the Fibularis (Peroneus) Brevis. This muscle will turn the foot outwards (Eversion); is the pain reduced when the feet are angled outward? The bilateral nature of your condition has me intrigued.....Are you a runner/athlete or a worker who undergoes repetitive strain to the feet? Any issues with the foot/ankle that have caused you to change the way you walk/run? Good luck in your searches for answers.
