View Full Version : my left foot
ok, so the sole of my left foot is killing me! feels like a tearing pain... ive attached a picture
i am getting worrried because i am getting shooting pains not only when working out but also when just walking around, either in flat sole shoes (converse low tops) or barefoot in my house...like literally a "tearing" feeling
im worried this will interfere with my leg training if i dont get it taken care of...considering i am unable to train calves right now and they ****ing suck to begin with :(
any ideas are appreciated... will be doing a tennis ball rolling excercises tomorrow when i actually get one...i also weighed in at 229.8 lbs tonight, up form 195 about 4 weeks ago
thanks in advance

Diagnosis: what Bana said
thanks for the info and the props :)... im very carb sensitive after my keto and a large part of the weight gain can be attributed to training legs again

how long have you been experiencing this pain? could it be your footwear?
I find that wearing flat sole sandals or shoes that are too narrow gives me terrible foot pain that can last for days after I stop wearing them.

On the golf forum I'm on, a lot of people swear by these...they have helped me eliminate foot pains/shin splints after walking a course, and I would recommend them to anyone experiencing foot/knee/shin pains.

I have had plantar fasciitis for almost two years now, it is the most painful thing I have ever experienced. I had to stop working out for about 6mths because the pain was so great, I could barley walk. It will get worse if you don't take care of it. I need to wear custom orthotics now, and the difference is unbelievable. They told me never to wear flat shoes (flip flops, bare feet, flats etc). Crocs are amazing, I have a pair to wear around the house. I still feel pain almost everyday, and sometimes my feet swell when I have been on standing for extended periods of time. But get better soon, and take care of it now, don't leave it.

ya go see a foot doctor, and get some orthotics. hopefully you have a good plan at work that will cover these, they can be pricey.
I dont have the same problem but my heels hurt so much at times, and now with orthotics no more pain.

had the same thing happen recently. It coincided with the purchase and first full day wearing of some new shoes which may have been too tight in the width. Pain began to subside after a week and is almost 100% gone 2 weeks later so at least there's a happy ending to it.
I'm guessing it could have happened while running a bit in non-running shoes. After reading some more I think this is a big no-no because your feet spring flat and thats when you mangle that myofascial tissue in your foot.

i second the orthotics. I couldn't imagine not wearing them now
hey guys, just an update.
ive been seing a chiro for the last 3 weeks... diagnosis, my neck is 1inch forward of where it should be, my hips are misaligned causing 1 foot to be longer than the other, and there is nerve impingement leading to my shoulder. hes been cracking the shit out of my back 3x a week, then 2x a week for the next 12 weeks... either way i feel much "lighter" now
im also getting ortohitcs sized this thirsday from the same guy.
with insuracne, its actually chaper to buy the orthotic + shoes combo, than just the orthotic and shoes separately from a store
thank you for all your input!!!
