I recently moved out to Spain, and started wearing flat shoes, now for about 2 months, my right foot is swollen, its not painful to touch, but hurts when I walk, I cannot walk now without a serious limp. I haven't had an accident or anything, so don't understand whats happening.

Thanks for this questionIt could be one of two things1)plantar fasciitis-this is inflammation of the bottom of the foot 2)a stress fracture I would recommend you see a doctor and have xrays done to check it out and rule out a fracture
