Outer left foot cramping up along the side? Help and thanks! :)

The outside edge of my left foot has started cramping up on EVERY walk or run, whether it's on the treadmill or outside.  It happens within the first 5 minutes.  It's not (yet) debilitating, and I've been able to walk through it most of the time, but it's getting worse every time.

 

I was fitted for these shoes at the end of May. They are verrrry good shoes from the local specialty running/shoe (Gribbles) store (not a chain), and until recently they were perfect and felt great.  I have no other injuries; in fact, my knees are much better than they were months ago.  My right foot has a 'little' of the same pain, but I hardly notice it.

 

I am still using good socks, and wearing good shoes.  These shoes don't have that many miles on them, or wear. 

 

I have tried taking time off from walking....no change. I have tried walking every day....no change.

 

Is there a fairly inexpensive way to remedy this, if any of you have experience with it?

 

Thanks in advance!!


Christina
