hurting a ton on the bottom whenever I flex it

User Profile
I was doing some weight lifting yesterday at a gym where I live and I was doing some leg press lifts and my right foot is hurting a ton on the bottom whenever I flex it; especially when I point it outward. It is painful when I walk and aches when I sit for a while. It goes from below my toes to just above my heel. I'm in a lot of pain when I walk and it hurts.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Get evaluated it might have resulted for lifting weights and leg pressing exercises. Rest for a while, take some tylenol and some muscle relaxant and see if it helps.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
