Ok, so yes, I have a docs appointment, but that is a few days away
Hoping for some insight until then.
I obtained an injury when I decided to go and do some hill training, shortly after graduating my C25K on a nothing but flat canal paths.
I suspect that suddenly hammering it downhill wasn't the best idea.
There is a pain underneath my foot, not quite on the fat pad that contacts the ground, but marginally forward from the pad.
I also have tightness on what feels like my achillies - e.g. a tighness/pain up the lower back of calf when striding far forward and/or bending leg over foot as when going down steps etc ..
Also, outer heel (you know, the knobly bit - fibula ?) looks swollen .
My guess is that I've just generally 'bashed' my foot in several places.... but I have no idea whether to rest or excercise or heat or ice pack or .... ??
Any tips ?
