Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, about two hours ago, I get up to go upstairs and take a nap when suddenly I realize that my foot hurts a lot. I cannot stand on it, and it is minorly swolen near the painful area. The center of the painful area is near the tarsometatarsel joint, around metatarsels three and four. It is painful to stand; pressure on the left side of the ball of the foot hurts near the top center. Pressure along the forward outside causes the greatest pain in the center of the aforementioned area. Pressure on the heel itself produces no pain, although when I step on the foot, it hurts, even if I try to put all the weight on the heel; however, it hurts much much less if I do.
I've put Aspercreme on it and have taken Aleve. I've also been keeping it raised. The swelling is rather minor, so I don't think ice will help too much, and anyway it doesn't really hurt that much when just keeping it around; just stepping on it.
The onset of pain was wierd, because it didn't come immediately during pretty much any activity (standing from sitting in a chair?). Earlier in the day, during a Muay Thai class, I did land a kick on the foot, causing a brief weak pain that went away fairly quickly. This is many hours and probably around a mile and a half of walking later with no other ill effects.
Just sort of curious what could be going on down there that wouldn't have hurt immediately. I have a dance tonight that I guess I can't really participate in, and am wondering whether I should do yoga tonight or not; I could probably skip poses on the foot, but if there's a lot I'll basically just be sitting around.
