I've been suffering from pain on the top part of my right foot for several months, getting progressively worse. I've not had an accident, so don't know why it's started, but it can be excruciating. It's slightly swollen compared to my other foot.
My doctor has sent me for an X-ray, which I had yesterday but won't know the results until next week, and has also given me some ibuprofen gel to rub in. However, I don't think it's going to show anything up, and I'm not sure if the gel is helping or not. If nothing comes to light I think she's going to refer me for an MRI scan to see what the soft tissues are doing. I guess this could be arthritis? It's not in one particular place, but covers a large part of the top of my foot.
Has anyone else out there experienced this and/or have any ideas of what it might be?
