Top of Foot Pain

I am so GLAD to have stumbled upon your website. As you are probably very used to, I would like to ask a question. My boyfriend has been expierencing pain on the top right side of his left foot next to the top of the ankle bone. It is a serious pain that returns about every three weeks and lasts for three to four days (It first appeared about four months ago). It hurts him constantly when it arises and only slightly throbs when it goes away. There is very little to no swelling and no differnces in color. Sometimes the pain will intensify and wake him up in the middle of the night or early morning hours in extreme pain. He does not participate in sports or strenuous exercise, run, or have any dieseases that may be associated with this type of foot problem. He is still able to walk and work but is in constant pain (He sometimes has to limp). We have tried ice, raising it, resting it, soaking it in warm water, changing shoes, almost everything I can think of but nothing works and the stubborn boy will not go to the doctor to find out what it is. Can you help me at least identify what the problem might be? I would be ever so grateful. Thank you very much for your time and hope you have a great day! Thanks So Much
