It sounds like you have an achilles tendon problem. The advice I would give to you is to take a weekend or so and do no physical activity and then see how it does. What kind of pain is it? If it is the achilles, I feel for you. The most awkward feeling pain there is.

the pain is like the pain of a minor twisted ankle it goes away after like 30 seconds but it gets annoying and sometimes it like repeats the pain like if im doing a step over in the middle of a game, once i land my foot on the ground itll hurt a little but then when i start to do other moves it randomly hurts between moves and its ANNOYING!!!!

Heya zerot4

Right now I'm experiencing the same problem too

it feels like a nerve, ligament or musle is being pulled

Did you find out a way to rid the pain?

yea, i found that some icing ur foot before u play helps alot, and that if it does happen again sooth your foot everyday for about 3 days or until ur foot feels better. i also found this site http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/sprain ... ns/DS00343

if it doesnt work then copy and paste, wait a while, if it still doent work then click refresh and that should clear up the problem.

could be a growth plate problem? You might of pulled your achilles tendon, what I'd say to do is stretch your achilles tendon 15 minutes a day by lieing down and getting a towel and pulling your foot back with it and ice it. A minor break wouldn.t hurt.

i've had the same exact thing. ice it and stay off it, that's the best advice there is. also, if it doesn't hurt too much, pull your foot up towards your shin to stretch it out a little bit. i don't know what that does to actually heal it, but it relieves some pain if you do it right
