Top Of Foot Pain


Every once in a while I experience pain on the top of my right foot towards my ankle. It started hurting the otherday after I was shoveling in my yard and jumping on the shovel to push it into the ground. I hurt my foot when I was 2 jumping off a swing (I am 15 now) and my parents never took me to a doctor they thought I might have fractured it but never did anything about it. What could be causing this pain? Should I get X-Rays to see if it never healed properly or what should I do?


  1. I like to say “to see is to jknow, not to see is to guess.”If xrays are not helpful, then I would consider an MRI
