Foot Pain When Running
A few years ago I was playing basketball in low cut loose running shoes (very stupid thing to do, I know!). Needless to say, at one point I jumped and landed with my right foot completed twisted inwards, at a 90 degree angle to the ground (ouch!) and all my weight pressed into it and I sprained my ankle. I had swelling and pain for many weeks, but eventually it healed–sort of.
There’s no pain when it comes to rotating my ankle; I can twist it any which way as far as I can and I feel no pain at all. However, if I do any running excercises for any length of time over 10 minutes, my right foot starts to feel what I can only describe as very hot, and after about 30 minutes of running my foot just feels terribly hot and it’s difficult to keep running on it. The heat/pain is nowhere specific — seems to be distributed along the foot. As soon as I stop running and take my foot out of the shoe, it instantly feels better.
Can anyone suggest why this might be and a possible remedy for it? Thanks to any help you can provide.
