    I've been having foot pain the last year or so due to an impact injury to the bottom of my foot and had a minor inversion sprain a couple months ago. I have moderate plantar fasciitis pain and cuboid/5th metatarsal base pain. The peroneal tendons are extremely tight and cause a tight pulling pain after walking or standing for a few minutes. Most of my pain is a strong ache, usually after walking or standing after I'm sitting down but every once in a while I get very sharp painful stabbing pain in the 5th metatarsal base and shaft area and the plantar fascia. Foot will get ice cold and sweaty during painful times and cause nausea.

    I've had xray's performed and most recently a MRI. The xray didn't show anything but the MRI came up with "bone contusion along the lateral aspect of the distal fibula at the lateral malleolus. Please see series 10 image 10, series 6 image 12 and series 5 image 13 among others. There is a subtle impacted fracture line along the long axis on the T1 weighted images. Please see series 9 images 10 and 11. There is high signal along the lateral aspect of the distal fibula/lateral malleolus, local edema and bone bruise"

    "no significant ligament, muscle or tendon injuries"

    Orthopedic surgeon said he couldn't do much besides cortisone injection. I'm continuing PT twice a week for plantar fasciitis but the lateral foot pain that wont go away is concerning. With these MRI results, would it be ok to run if the pain isn't horrendous? What else could be causing this? Thanks!

    I wanted to add another pain. There's a very strong stabbing pain below the heel on the lateral aspect of the foot on the sole when walking or turning while walking.
