Peronial insertional tendonitis

I've been experiencing a sharp pain on the outside of my left foot along the bone since the marathon and I just looked today to find a potential name for my problem. Ten google searches later I found a good forum post where a runner described the same symptoms. A forum visitor responded to explain that she experienced a similar pain running on an inclined surface, similar to the highway in San Diego and from the pictures she provides and the description, I think it's what I am experiencing. “Peronial insertional tendonitis”. I've been taking Advil like a good little patient but I haven't stopped running. I can go about 3 miles without pain but mile 4 is just too much.
