the top where my right foot meets my leg is sore and down the foot some to my toes and up my leg a little. I think its extensor tendonitis. saturday I did an easy ride. then saturday night I get out of my pc chair and bam my foot is in intense pain from 10pm to like 8am. i only got a few hours sleep, and I usually sleep like a baby. then it felt a lot better during the day on sunday, I did hardly any walking. taking 2 asprin every 4 hours, and icing. sunday around midnight it got really bad again. maybe a little worse than sat. during the night I noticed the pain in the front of my leg a little, it wasn't there sat night. today its about the same as it was sunday in the day.
Im not sure what caused this but im guessing back extensions. I started doing them over an exercise ball with the heel of my feet tucked under the lip of the couch a couple months ago to strengthen back muscles. doing those made my hamstrings sore and felt stressful for my calfs. I noticed some pain in my right hamstring about 3 weeks ago. it didn't feel like much, then a week later it was gone and a new pain was in my right calf, that didn't feel like much, another week later that was gone and now a pain in the foot which again didn't feel like much. about a week later and we get to now. my foot is pretty swollen, it looks like I broke my foot or something. the skin is red.
