    Hi, I was hoping someone could help me determine what is wrong with my foot. I am a pretty serious pole vaulter and am very active (biking, running etc, vaulting, etc.) A couple of months ago I some minor foot pain on my arch and top of foot. My coach told me to purchase some arch supports and they've helped until now. Everytime I run and sometimes when I'm just walking, the top of my foot hurts pretty bad :( It's only my take off foot, the other foot doesn't hurt at all. One of my coaches said he thinks it's a stress fracture. I am getting reading to vault in college and am REALLY hoping it's not a stress fracture! Any ideas on treatment or what it could be??

    Oh my goshness, I have the same pain in the same spot right now . Its lasted about 3-4 months and I am really sick of it. Its painful and my foot even looks a little bruised and its red and kinda swelled. Please let me now what this is if you happen to find out, I have been looking at all the possibilities forever.

    It could be a stress fracture but without an x-ray no-one can tell. You need to see a podiatrist for a proper diagnosis.
