My feet and ankles hurt. Mostly my left side. It's not all the time, however it is often. The pain is in the ball of my foot and radiates to my ankle. Sometimes it hurts so bad I can not hardly put weight on my foot. What could it be?

Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose or recommend medical treatments on line. Your best course of action is to see your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine the cause of your pain and provide recommendations for treatment. Because you describe the pain as severe, we would recommend that you consult a medical professional as soon as you can, so that you can have a diagnosis and recomended treatment. You can use our Foot Pain Self-Assessment Tool to determine some possible causes of the pain; however, please understand that this tool is not meant for diagnosing foot conditions, nor is it a substitute for a consultation with a medical professional. We hope your condition will be resolved and that your pain will soon be under control.
