Thank you for contacting us. IPFH does not diagnose conditions or offer medical advice on line. The pain that you describe could be caused by any of several conditions, or could be the result of an injury you received to that area of the foot. You don't mention any injury or trauma to the foot, so our best advice for you is to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine the reason for this pain and recommend appropriate treatment. Since you describe a rather severe level of pain, we would recomend that you consult a medical professional as soon as you can. We hope that you will do this, and that you will soon have a resolution to your pain.
