Just wondering if anyone that has had arched feet had one of their arches begin to fall?
I've been having foot/ankle pain for the better of 3 months now and just noticed that along the inside of my right foot under my ankle and alongside the arch the tendon area looks swollen and flat when I put weight on it.
I know it isn't completely collapsed or anything because when i take weight off of it my arch will form again, but its annoying enough to cause pain during my gait/walking cycle and change the way I walk and stand.
I recently bought new, firmer shoes since I also overpronate with that foot for as long as I can remember and its slightly helped. My husband even pointed out to me in years past that my right shoe wears weird and it shows overpronation. I never paid any mind to it since it didn't hurt, but I guess I stretched the tendon out enough in my 28 years now for it to be an issue.
My biggest irrational fear with my hypochondria is that this isn't just a simple over stretched foot tendon, but the beginning of a neuro nasty and muscle failure. I'm trying to be super logical and I guess I should just go to a podiatrist and not run straight to my neuro for a second EMG. The already emg'd my calf muscle back in Feb and it was normal.
Talk me down friends.
