    2 weeks ago i slipped down steps, went to Orthopedist 11 days later. He took xrays said nothing broken. The 12th day i started getting shooting pain on top of foot, in middle of foot. Anyone know whats causing this sporadic shooting pain?

    You should take precautions :
    Don't wear tight shoes and walk bare foot
    1. Apply ice to the ankle to reduce pain and swelling. Avoid wrapping or compressing the joint
    2. Do exercises which do not create lots of pressure on the foot.
    3. Take Ibuprofen - its Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce pain and inflammation.

    Thanks for your response Robert. I have been doing that, putting ice to reduce swelling and swelling is practically all gone. I've been taking the ibuprofen also. But don't know why i'm getting these sharp, shooting/stabbing pains in center of top of my foot close to ankle. Was wondering if you or anyone else might have an idea. I'm do back to the orthopedist in 1 1/2 weeks and will mention to him and see what he says. But thought someone else might have an idea of the shooting/stabbing pain.

    you must be having Plantar fascitis, It is an inflammation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that extends from the heel to the toes. the major symptoms is Pain on the bottom of the heel.

    You can use Custom orthotic devices, A removable walking cast
    Also, please take x-rays and scan tests because with out it no one can tell you what exactly is going on inside.
