PT Docs help.. foot pain

I started having pain on the outside, center bottom of my left foot. Walking is very painful and I have no idea what I did. I am going to try and wear my sneakers today and give it some support, but the pain is really annoying. No swelling or bruising, so I have no idea what I did. Any advice is appreciated!

Could it be plantar fasciitis?

Ice for 15minutes, twice a day. Get better soon.

plantar fasciitis

If it is plantar fasciitis, (hurts the most when you step out of bed in the morning), I have finally gotten rid of the pain by: stretching (youtube has videos showing this) several times a day; icing: rolling it on a frozen water bottle; using a foot splint at night (keeps the foot in 90 degree position), and losing 15 pounds. It has taken months, but I am finally pain free.

Sounds like PF like the above posters mentioned. The foot doctor told me to never go barefoot (even to use the restroom during the night) and to wear Birkenstocks until it healed. I did break down and buy a pair and they felt terrific. Good luck - it is very painful.
