Is it broken?

This is going to sound crazy, but I am really wondering what is going on. I would appreciate any ideas that you can offer.

I was walking to campus two days ago (which is about a mile and a half) and the top of my left foot started hurting everytime I took a step. The more I walked, the more it hurt. Eventually I noticed that I was limping. I mean it really hurt to walk on it. For the last two days it has continued to hurt. I don't recall doing anything that would cause this pain.

I do, however, have a pre-existing condition in my shins called posterial tibula stress syndrome... which stemmed from my arches collapsing during high school track. My feet have never been in the greatest condition, but I have only broken my foot once (left) in my entire life when I was 9.

It becomes increasingly painful the longer I walk, but I can still walk. I don't see any abnormal coloring or swelling outside the normal (from my pre-existing condition). It aches while I am sitting. Could it have something to do with my arches? It almost feels like I dropped something on the top of my foot... about 2 inches below my big toe. It is a pinpointed pain in that spot mostly when I walk, however, my entire foot and outsides of my ankle ache while walking and while sitting.

I know that I have written a lot, but I wanted to give you as much information as possible since this is such a weird happening. If you have any idea what is going on would you please email me back?
Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
Have a wonderful day.
