Last year I fell and broke my left ankle in 2 places and my leg just below my knee. Lately I have noticed a large knot on the top of my foot over my arch and the knot can be felt through to the arch of my foot. The arch is constantly painful whether sitting, standing or lying down. I am afraid that this situation will require surgery with time off my feet again and I have put off seeing a doctor for the situation.

I went to bed fine and woke up with sharp pain on the inside arch at the center of my foot. I can massage all around the bone but when I touch the bone there is a sharp pain. I have had this for 2 days now. It hurts when I walk.

I am recovering from 2 peroneal brevis surgeries and I perhaps overdid it when it came to rehabilitation. I thought my plantar fasciitis was flaring and began a heavy stretching and massaging routine. By the 4th day my arch pain began to hurt so bad it prevented any activity. Now I am back to RICE, Guess I wanted fast results and know I'm paying for it.

I have arch pain in my right foot. There is a grainy knot located straight down from the big toe in the highest part of the arch yet closer to heel. It started as a knot, sort of grainy. I have a bunion and a very high arch. I have rubbed the knot very sore and it feels like it has a bad bruise. My foot appears swollen and very tender to touch.

I have pain on the inside of my right foot for the past few days. The arch is slightly swollen and if I touch the bone it hurts. It a low grade throbbing pain that is not going away. I took Alieve and have iced the area. It almost feels like I hit my foot on something but I did not.

I have nerve pain in my arch on the side and shooting to the top of my foot. Presently I am taking Lyrica but not sure this is working.
