Stabbing pain in bottom of left foot

User Profile
I have a stabbing pain in the bottom of my left foot after long periods of walking. It is almost dead centre of my entire foot, and produces an external red mark after extremely long periods of time. It feels as though something is pressing into the bottom of my foot from the inside out, and it is extremely uncomfortable. The red mark it produces does not stay long, nor is it raised, it is just sore to press.
This has been happening for a long time now and I need to have a general idea as to what is wrong with me. My right foot has never bothered me.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be plantar fasciitis or tendon sprain because of over use during walking. I would suggest you to have consultation with chiropractor.
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
