All i have got pain in my right foot had it a few months,

Resolved Question:

hi all i have got pain in my right foot had it a few months, its worse when i have been sat down and then stand up. the pain is in the dip just before the heel when i press it the pain feels like its in the left side of my foot and feels like a mild burning pain. Sometimes when im sat with no load on my foot i feel a dull pain in it for around 10 seconds and then it goes... any one have any ideas to what this is. I havnt been to the doctor yet because i am simply too busy and expected the pain to go after a bit but its been around 4/5 months now.

Hello
This can be from a pinched nerve at the level of ankle, leg or lower spine.
You need an exam to see.
Do not let this go on without evaluation.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

In most cases, the correct physical therapy.
Rarely at your age, surgery.
