Foot Pain in arch
Left side of my right foot near my arch is really sore. It swells up and hurts to walk or stand on it to long. Gets to the point where I no longer want to be on it or put wait on it. The doctor I seen said it was plantar fasciitis but when I read into it saw that pain occurs in the heel which I contain no pain in my heel. When I hurt it my ankle sprained and something pinched in my arch. My ankle on my right foot is very weak and has had several serious sprains and swells on a normal basis. I have been using a night splint which helps reduce the pain. I also wrap my foot and that only helps for a small amount of time.

Most commonly this type of clinical picture it's suggestive of plantar fascitis. Better to seek another opinion with an orthopedic surgeon and follow complete therapy including physiotherapy

Hi I have a suspicion you suffer from flatfoot. Check out whether the inner aspect of your foot is touching or almost tooching the floor when you are standing straight. This could be leading to the pain on the said area, this pain is usually aggravated with prolonged standing. If so, you need to use an arch support in your footwear and do physiotherapy to strengthen the group of muscles that lift up your arch. Hope that is useful. Get well soon, Regards, Dr Saseendar, Consultant Sports Surgeon, www.caresportsinjury.com
