What made my foot wake me up in the middle of the night? I have severe pain in the top of my foot for no apparent reason. It feels broken - such extreme pain that it hurts when the bed covers touch it.

Thank you for contacting us. IPFH does 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 the cause for the pain and then treat it appropriately. You can use our foot pain self-assessment tool to help determine what might be causing the pain in your foot, but please understand that this is not a diagnostic tool, nor is it a substitute for a consultation with a medical professional. The level of pain you describe is pretty serious, so we would encourage you to consult a medical professional at your earliest convenience. We hope you will do this, and that your pain will soon be resolved.
