Pain on top and left side of left foot; no treatment works!!!! what could it be?

HI:

I am a long distance runner and for the past 2-3 weeks, I have been feeling intense pain on the top and left side of my left foot. The pain developed during a 12 mile run. There is no redness or discoloration and hardly any swelling, but the pain is intense and I end up walking on my toes which has strained that area also. I've tried rest, ice, voltarin cream and anti-inflammatories, but nothing has worked. My doctor had me do xrays which came back clear. Then I was sent for a bone scan to show a possible stress fracture, but that also came back clear. Now, I'm getting really worried. What else could be wrong?
