Since my longest ever run 10 days ago I've had a niggly pain on top of my foot. (Left foot and pain is just to the left of the centre line.) I stupidly went running 3 times last week and the niggle has become actual pain and there is some swelling. I'm icing, resting and taking ibuprofen. Internet self-diagnosis leads me to think that its likely a tendon (also a few years back I went to the doctor with similar pain and he said it was "probably tendonitis").
Any exprience out there with this sort of thing ? Other than rest, has anyone found anything useful that speeds up healing ? (I'm not convinced that the ice makes any difference to be honest.)
thanks for any input.
