    I have a lot of pain in my right foot, which started suddently and kept increasing over a 2 hour period. Before it started, I left work and drove 30 minutes, picked up my wife at work and drove to the supermarket. I think it started the moment I put weight on my foot when coming out of the car. I didn't trip, step on anything, or do something unnatural.

    This was about 4 hours ago, and not very much at first, I could walk with a slight discomfort, but it has gotten worse. It seemed like a cramp in my arch, but without a cramp, just the pain. Right now it hurts even if I don't touch it, a kind of dull pain, but if I press the part that hurts, it hurts a lot. I can trigger the pain a little by bending my toes in, and a lot it I bend them out.

    It seems very local, but if I touch where it hurts, it hurts a lot and leaves the left part of my foot in pain for a few seconds.

    While eating, I took a 100mg ibuprofen pill because the pain showed no signs of stopping, and afterwards I tried to massage it, and put my foot in hot water. Something made the pain a little lighter, probably the ibuprofen, but it's still there and I can't walk using that foot unless I put the weight on it's right side.

    What do you think could have happened? I'd rather not go to the doctor for some muscular pain that will go away on it's own, and waste a lot of money on having a doctor tell me to keep taking ibuprofen.

    I took a picture and put a circle where if I press that spot, it's very painful.

    Thanks a lot!
