Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or provide medical advice on line. You should consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional at your earliest opportunity. The pain you describe could be caused by any of several conditions, and because it seems to be intense, it is advisable that you have your foot examined by a medical professional. He or she can determine the cause for the pain and recommend treatment. You can also use our foot pain self-assessment tool to see a few possible causes for the pain; however, keep in mind that this tool is not a diagnostic device, nor is it a substitute for a professional medical examination. We hope you will consult a medical professional as soon as possible, and we wish you a quick resolution to your condition.
