Try not tying it so tight around the area that's effected. The first few eyelets starting at the toes don't need to be super tight. Try tying the lower portion so they're barely tight and see how that goes.
This is exactly what I did last night. Tried to be more intentional about it, feeling for where the pain actually was. Let those eyelets breathe a little, tied the rest up as tight as possible. Felt significantly better. I might still try for another bake, but at least that helped.
