ok lately after i get done playing on the set my foot starts to hurt. i've been using the same technique for a very long time and it has never caused me any problems. i play single pedal and i dont use anything like heel toe or constant release or the swivel ex-technique. when i do my doubles i skip up to the front of the pedal its how i've always done them and only since recently my foot hurts a bit after i get done playing. anybody have any advice or thoughts?

check if you're foot moves in weird ways. like sideways or something like that. Try to keep your body from being tense.

i've already checked if it moves sideways and its been straight like its always been i do play " alot f bass" so i guess i'll take a break dont want to get seriously hurt. i normally play a lot of 16th notes around 100 bpm and a lot of fast doubles around 200 bpm

Do you feel pain while you play?

Just take it easy for a day or two, it'll probably go away on it's own.
