I started experiencing a bizarre pain in my right foot about three days ago. It took awhile to figure out how to recreate the pain, but I've narrowed it down to stretching of the hamstring. I don't do ham-stretches as I've been trying to shorten that muscle and fix APT.
I'm wondering if that has anything to do with this. I now experience this pain when I bend over to pick something up with straight leg(s) and I can feel the pain become greater if my foot slightly flexes upwards. (Like doing calf raises on a leg press- though I usually keep my knees slightly bent.)
It's in a weird spot on the inside of the foot between the back of the heel and ankle. I could not find the proper anatomical term for this spot. So I did my best to circle the area in this picture:
It seems like it's too far back to be the posterior tibial tendon, could possibly be the flexor retinaculum. It's a sharp, tingling pain on the inside and it feels like if it stays in that state for too long that something will snap or I'll experience prolonged pain. All pain is alleviated once my knee is bent or I stand back up. I've never experienced pain in this area. I've not done anything recently that I'm aware of that would have reason to cause this pain.
Any idea what this is?
