pain right side of right foot

About one week ago I participated in a marathon walk on hilly terrain. I felt fine throughout; however, I woke up the following morning with severe foot pain. The pain is on the outside of my right foot, between the heel and the pinky toe. For the first few days I could hardly walk on it and the pain was excruitiating. However, when I was seated, my foot did not hurt at all... I can also drive with it. The pain is strictly when walking. It doesn't hurt at all when I first wake up, but gets worse throughout the day to the point where I feel my foot is tearing in half. I went to an urgent care clinic and the x-rays came out negative. The doctor gave me crutches and told me to wait a week. Since I've been off of the foot, it feels much better; however, if I walk without the crutches the pain begins to return after a while.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
