Bottom opf foot Foot pain

Anybody have any ideas about pain I'm getting on the bottom of my feet.
It's the fleshy area between the toes and the arch..

This has happened before.
Saturday did five 1 1/2 hr games (2 base, 3 plates) spread out over 12 hrs.

Feels like a bruise.

I use Honigs plate shoes (which feel bind a little at the sides of the toes) and New Balance for the bases.

Further describing the pain, it kind of feels like my sock is doubled up under that area.

I will be checking with a Doctore... just wondered if anyine here experienced similar symptoms..

Sounds like a bruise or tendonitis.
Ice and advil.
Try taping it to minimize aggravation during games.

I usually get a pain in the *** during games ;-)

Is it in a concentrated area or kind of all over on that part of the foot? If it is concentrated, it could be metatarsal overload. I have that on the second metatarsal and it hurts. The symptoms can flare up if you wear too narrow of shoes. Check the length of your second toe, if it is too long in comparison to your big toe, that can also put extra load on that metatarsal head.

Definitely need new shoes if they feel too snug. What size shoe do you normally wear? Regular or wides?

Yes. I have experience just the sort of pain that you described within the past couple of weeks. Mine has since subsided. Let me know what the doc says. I am curious now.

Might be plantar fasciitis. The pain with that is often further back in the foot than what you described but it can occur in a more forward position as well. There is a good bit of info on WebMD about it, including some simple tests you can do that will help determine if that's what you've got. Plantar fasciitis is often associated with runners, but can occur in people who stand a lot and who have flat feet (like me). The treatment usually involves some stretching exercises and putting a special arch support in your shoes which most good athletic shoe stores carry.

Sounds like a severe case of Coachunderfoot.

Thanks for all the words - it's nice to know others are familiar with similar pain. ;-)

Come on, be honest. You know damn well that most of the pain we umpires get on the field is felt somewhere other than the foot

A co-worker of mine is retiring at the end of the month. He called me up with a question about his laptop, and during the course of conversation, said to me, "Dave, if I could give you one piece of advice, don't ever retire. It's a pain in the a$$."

I immediately responded, "Ken, if that's the case, you're doing it wrong."

Before I got two sentences out of my mouth, the Dr. said "plantar fasciitis".

Among other things, I'll be checking closer to make sure the shoes are fitting properly and paying more attention to arch support.

I've bought all my shoes on line before, but I think I'll be a good shopper and make sure I have a good fit before I go for it.
I don't anticipate much problem with the base shoes.
Don't know where to walk in for plate shoes except Honigs in Ft. Lauderdale - about 2.5 hrs away...

Thanks for the update. Now I have an idea on what I am dealing with as well.

I had plantar fasciitus but my pain was in my heel. I had cortizone injections but that only took care of the problem for 2 weeks. I have high arches and bought some orthodics and the problem went completely away within 3 days. Dave

I did that, but my mother in law is still here.

However, it is strange how the foot can be the origin of a lot of pain and not always in the foot.
