It is not painful to stand on, rotate in any direction however I do get pain when running. do you know what this might be?

Hi and welcome to HCM

It might be stress fracture or strain .I advice you to follow the below mentioned guidelines -

* Give adequate rest to the involved muscle group and avoid any movement that causes pain
* Ice packing once in every 2 hours over the affected area
* Moist heat application to relax the muscles
* Local application of muscle relaxant gel
* Analgesic medications as needed

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
