Right Foot Arch Falling?
« on: May 06, 2014, 02:30:42 PM »
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.

Go to the podiatrist. If you're having pain for three months, you should have it looked at, but it sounds like a tendon or muscle issue rather than something neurological.

Seconding the podiatrist suggestion - if you're having pain and difficulty for this long, it's time to see a doctor.  NOT BECAUSE THERE'S ANYTHING SERIOUS GOING ON, but because that's what doctors are for - you hurt your foot; they'll tell you what to do to get things back to normal.
