I have a stabbing pain on the top of my foot that will wake me up and not let me sleep.
Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or provide medical advice on line. Your best course of action is to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine what is causing the pain, and provide recommended treatment to alleviate it. You can use our foot pain self-assessment tool to help determine what might be causing the pain, but please understand that this is not a diagnostic tool, nor is it a substitute for a professional medical consultation. We hope you will contact your primary care physician or a foot health professional, and we would recommend that you do it as soon as possible since you describe the pain as severe, and it is affecting your quality of life by causing you to lose sleep. We wish you the best, and hope that your condition will very quickly be resolved.
