I recently performed the Grand Pas from Nutcracker and luckily made it through. However, I've been dancing with a pain in my left foot since the beginning of November. I haven't danced since the show (two weeks) and I've been to the doctor. He told me it wasn't a stress fracture and he thinks it's just tissue damage. I won't dance again until Jan 5 cause that will have given me a full four weeks off to heal. However, I can feel a lump in my foot between the first and second metatarsals that will not go away. It feels swollen and knotted and it hasn't gotten better. The pain has lessened with time off but I'm scared because it has not fully improved. I want to go back to a different doctor but I don't think they can do anything for me. Please help.

What kind of a doctor did you go to? I think it would be a very good idea to go to a Podiatrist. It sounds to me like something they can deal with.
