Apophysitis ?

Dear Doc- I am 34 yrs old and I am 6'1" and 225lbs. I have been running for approx 2 yrs. I have gradually gone from 5k races to half marathons and train slowly with slow mile increase in training. I was diagnosed by my PCP doc as Apophysitis.
How do you treat this and is this Apophysitis? It is between my toe and heel area on the left outer side of left foot. There is one tiny area where it is sore sore. i cannot walk on it without limping. barefoot is crazy bad. Ultrasound caused severe pain so they thought there was a fracture. Xrays showed neg.
Please help! I want to continue running but do not want to do worse damage. How do I treat this? What do I avoid and what schedule for "back to running" would you suggest?
thanks more than you will know,
