Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community.

Stress fractures are a common cause of pain on outside of the foot. They occur when there is a small break in one of the foot bones usually from repetitive sporting activities.

Ankle sprains are the most common cause of pain on the outside of the foot following an injury accounting for 85% of ankle injuries.

Peroneal Tendonitis is another common cause of pain on outside of foot and around the heel. It develops when there is repetitive tension through the peroneal tendons of the foot causing irritation, inflammation and degeneration.

Bunions are a common cause of deformity and pain on the outside of the foot by the big toe.

You may want to speak to your primary care physician about this.
