Pain on the Foot’s Outer Edge
The outer edge of your foot, the fifth metatarsal bone, is a commonly broken bone in the foot. Pain, swelling, and bruising along the outer foot edge after an injury are symptoms. If you think you may have broken a bone, see a doctor and have an X-ray.
To treat it:
- Take pain relievers.
- Rest, ice, and elevate your foot.
- Don’t walk on it.
- Ask your doctor if surgery is necessary.
- A cast may be necessary in some circumstances.
