Hello, Recently i have been experiencing a horrible deep pain in my foot. It occurs on the right side of the right foot about halfway in between the pinky toe and the ankle about halfway, and a centimeter in from the outside of the foot. the area of pain is about the size of a quarter but is very intense, i would compare to a fracture. Pain occurs when walking or applying pressure to the right side of the foot. there is no noticeable swelling in comparison to the other foot. i would normally write this off as nothing, but the weird thing is is that it all started when i woke up one morning there was no prior pain or other buildup, there is no bite marks, no bruising, just a terrible pain. i tried to wait it out a day, but the pain stayed with up until i fell asleep. when i woke up the next day the pain was reduced, but continued throughout the day. When i woke up this morning however, the pain was worse than ever, i tried to stand and nearly fell. could you please tell me whether this may be something life threatening such as perhaps a clot in the foot (does that happen), or maybe bone or tendon trauma?
