Pain on the outside of both feet.
Hi. I really hope someone can help me here.
I used to play Badminton as a kid at a fairly high level 8 years ago - Now I am starting up again (Age 24) and have played for some weeks now. It's great to play again but I have a problem. During last training i started to feel this pain on the outside of both of my feet, the next morning I could barely walk. This pain has been going on for about a week now and it has become better but still hurts and I am afraid it will come back when I play next time. I threw out the cheap Badminton shoes that I started to play with (which also was really narrow) and have bought myself some new ones today from Bonny sports which feels very very comfortable.
I really hope it was the cheap shoes that was the reason for the pain but could it be something else, maybe starting up too hard or something?
Anyway my question is:
Have any of you experienced this pain on the outside of the foot (right beneath the knot on the little toe) and what did you do to solve the problem?
I really hope some of you can help me out because I love this game!

Cheap narrow shoes sounds like the most likely answer.
Give your new ones some time and you'll know for sure.

It does sound like the shoes may have been the problem because you said both feet were affected. Hopefully the new shoes will help your feet.

Thanks for the answers. I really hope it is also the shoes. Been resting for a week now and it is better, but not entirely gone. I will try to play with my new shoes monday and see how it goes (:

make sure you break in your new shoes first before wearing it to train! or you're going to have some new pain
you can break it in by wearing it inside your home for a few hours

[...]and what did you do to solve the problem?[...]
I gave away the really narrow pair.
I gave the slightly narrow pair the ice treatment - and I'm now using the pair.
Of course, in both cases, the first thing I did was to STOP using them anymore.

A pair of those custom molded insoles might work?? (never used them)
