Instead of diagnosing a 'condition', I was reading and looking for a 'cause.'

I'm not a doctor, but two things come to mind from experience with my old body.

1) Shoes. You mentioned recently trying the barefoot style with improved results. Seems like a fit issue might be the cause?

2) Strength. How conditioned are you for what you are doing? Are you pushing yourself beyond your limits and that result is showing up in your ankles/feet as pain and inflammation?

Hope you find the answer soon so you can do what you enjoy pain free!

The fix was to widen the area around the base of the big toe, plastic ski boots are commonly stretched out as needed. You might need to give your toes more room.
I have slightly wide feet and slight bunions. The bunion seems to cause boots to be tight, but manifests itself on the OUTSIDE of the foot.
This could be a decent start point for you maybe.
i agree

i think you might be right for part of the problem
2) Strength. How conditioned are you for what you are doing? Are you pushing yourself beyond your limits and that result is showing up in your ankles/feet as pain and inflammation?

i don't think i'm pushing myself beyond my limits. in fact, most of the time, these issues arise when i have plenty "left in the tank" and it pisses me off. if anything, this issue is causing me to stagnate because i'm not even getting close to my physical limits and can't get stronger/faster/lose weight/gain endurance

and can't get stronger/faster/lose weight/gain endurance..


Oh you want to fix this, and not lose anything, you want gains ?


stop running

stop soccer

stop using your feet basically

start riding a bike, stationary or real bike
just spinning the pedals. you only care
about moving the legs and muscle memory, no power, just
spin 90 rpm or higher, 30 minutes at a time, and aerobic.
after 1 month add power and time....
the ball of your foot should be centered on the pedal axle

start upper body workouts, no squats or leg presses,
do situps, back extensions, flys, upright rows

do this for 2 months, then 2 more

you should be able to solve the foot problem... and the rest
of your body, and also endurance will be ahead of the game,
no losses in the long term, since you are not loafing around,
you are still doing work. [just not hard work directly with the feet....]

but you have to stop running and soccer for 4 months, so do the
above and guaranteed when the foot is better you'll be ahead not behind

wednesdays: 20 minutes running, v-grip pull downs (or pull-ups) 2x12, shoulder press 2x12, cable curls 2x12, upright rows 2x12, in-and-out shoulder flies 2x12, abs
fridays: 20 minutes running, dips 2x12, bench press or dumbbell press 2x12, tricep press 2x12, skull-crushers 2x12, chest flies 2x12, abs
if i'm feeling good, i run for 25 minutes on tuesdays, thursdays, or saturdays, but most weeks, those are rest days

What you need to see is a podiatrist who are specialists in foot and ankle. I recently got my doctorate degree in podiatry. From what you describe, there are many many factors that can contribute to this condition. More importantly, your foot type (flat feet, high arch, etc), shoe wear ( which I think the barefoot running shoes can be the culprit), how often you exercise in a week, or if you have recurrent ankle sprains to that foot? When did all of this begin? What about with certain shoes? What makes it feel better?

Some things to keep in mind: could be nerve entrapment. Could also be peroneal tendinitis which is the inflammation of the tendon at the outside of your ankle which can cause it to compress the nerve that runs by the lateral ankle, which causes the numbness. If you have a history of ankle sprains, it can be peroneal tendon sheath subluxation. There are a lot of things it can be and it's hard to diagnose if I can't see you physically. Take a picture of both feet standing forward, sideways, and from behind.

annnnnnnnnnd you have foot problems with that routine somehow.

Utter desperation ? stop field sports, for now. You are not quitting soccer
you are going on the DL, which means you are going to go back to it. eventually.

hence, stop doing the stuff that puts stress on the feets, swap
to easy spinning cycling which will work the feet but also give them
a big rest while you can get the heartrate up as far as you want

soccer will break the bones in your feet.

what do I know ? played soccer for years, busted my foot doing so,
have recovered from it basically the same way I posted...came back
to the field far stronger

-------
truth is: you need to see an ortopedic surgeon and podiatrist
who don't say 'I dunno' and rather say 'Oh yeah we work with many
professional athletes
, and here is what we need to plan and execute....'
because you have been getting non-advice when you need a real plan

a real sports doctor is in the business of getting athletes back in action,
no saying 'I dunno'
