Plantar Fasciitis near ball of foot?
I am currently experiencing pain in what i believe is my plantar fascia. It started two days ago as mild cramping, and now has swollen into a knot just below (or behind, if you prefer) the ball of my foot. The pain is not excruciating, but it is constant, and forces me to limp. I have had plantar fasciitis before, but it was closer to the heel, and most sources i have researched have indicated PF as being pain near the heal. My question is, is this likely plantar fasciitis, just in a less common spot on the foot? or is it likely something else? I have also been nursing a knee injury, which likely made me change my gait for a few weeks. is it possible this has contributed to my foot pain? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
