Ripping arch

Just yesterday I started to feel a ripping feeling in my foot just where the arch is. I thought it would be gone by today but its still there. Its only on my left foot.

kballet, I'm sorry, but we cannot diagnose the problem from that kind of discription. It's time to see a physician.

I hope so too, but if not, it is good that you have an appointment.

I have made a post like this before but the ripping feeling in my arch has come back. It starts very early into barre and I don't think I should sit out because I would miss the whole class. I have very tight calves so this might be the reason. I stretch and massage my calves every day before and after class but it doesn't seem to be working. It would probably take a week before I can see a doctor so is there anything I can do before that?

kballet, you never reported back to us on what happened when you went through this before, in the fall of 2014. Did you see a physician? Was there a diagnosis? We are not medical experts here, so we cannot tell you what to do. After you have seen the physician and received a diagnosis, let us know what this is, and hopefully, what is causing it and what you can do about it.

I don't really remember the doctor saying what it was but he said to let it rest and ice it. It did go away after a little bit so that is good. I have been resting it over spring break and I will have to see how it is when I get back.

kballet, what you are describing really needs a diagnosis. You are responsible for your body and therefore you must pay attention to what the doctor says and if you do not hear him give the issue a "name", then you must ask probing questions until he takes you seriously enough to offer you a treatment plan. Frequently something like this is caused from tight calves and can be a combination of pronation, tight muscles, and incorrect alignment which can turn into some serious issues like plantar fasciitis. If your doctor doesn't take you seriously push your parents for a second opinion.

Ok I will ask my parents if we can book a doctor's appointment soon. My mom doesn't like to take me to the doctor too much so I will need to convince her first.
