I'm a 16 year old athlete and I have been


Q: I'm a 16 year old athlete and I have been having pains in the bottom and side of my foot. It's mostly been just a pester and when I started using ankle braces it was helping but today I wore my braces and stretched before I did a run but the pain was excruciating. I could only do a mile and had to immediately biofreeze my feet I was in so much pain. It took 15-20 minutes to feel any relief from my pain. I'm just frustrated I know I have flat feet and have had shin splints before but I have never had this pain. I have done some research and I can't tell if I may have a stress fracture or just shin splints getting worse. I also have not had any injuries to cause this
