it would be worth knowing if there is any notion of trauma or not. If not, is this the first time you are experiencing this pain? Is the pain constant or is only felt when you walk or there is mobilization.
Depending on these characteristics, this pain could be traumatic, infectious of inflammatory.
An X ray
could be very helpful. Blood tests like a complete blood count
, erythrocyte sedimentation rate
and C reactive protein
could be important in drawing the borderline between an infectious and a purely inflammatory source.
Visiting tour family physician for a proper evaluation and running these simple tests could be very useful in getting an appropriate diagnosis and drawing up a specific and comprehensive treatment plan.
I suggest you consult as soon as you can your family physician. For the moment, avoid hard and firm shoes and simple analgesics and anti inflammatory drugs could be of help.
Thanks and best regards,
