Re: Pain top of foot

Without examining you, I can not be sure. One consideration is as you mentioned, shin splints. This can cover a number of things though. Another is a stress fracture. Sometimes on an MRI we will get a diagnosis of bone marrow edema and the x-ray's are negative. If you are concerned, I recommend you see a podiatrist.

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
