    Hopefully you can help me shed some light on my legs here. I was hit by a car when riding my motorcycle last year and I tore, partially, my Achilles tendon which has since healed about 80%. Still tight, mostly in the mornings, but not too much pain. So it's a given that I was limping for quite some time. Now I went on a short hike with my girlfriend on Sunday 2/1 and later that night I started having severe pain in my opposite foot. No injury. The pain is at the Lisfranc lateral side. Definitely in that spot. No swelling. Little to no pain when not on my foot including when I massage or bend my foot in all directions but when I stand on it for more than 5 seconds the pain is unbearable. I don't have medical insurance at the moment and I work on my feet so I'm in a bind. Can you help?

    What do you honestly expect that anyone could possibly responsibly do for you without an examination and with only the fact that your foot becomes so painful that you cannot bear it after 5 seconds of standing? You are asking here what you would neither consider asking of nor expect answers from even a doctor which you had intentions of seeing.

    I'm recovering from a lisfranc injury. Mind you, I'm not a doctor, but I do know there are a lot of bones in the foot, and I'm sure a lot of other tendons/ligaments/ muscles/ etc that could be injured. If it is a lisfranc injury, I hate to tell ya, you're gonna need SOME kind of treatment for it. From what I've learned since I've been dealing with this injury doing nothing could do permanent damage and you could end up with some degree of permanent pain. You're wallet isn't going to like this but you should probably see a doctor.
