I have extreme pain and swelling on the top of my foot at the base of the 3rd, 4th and last toes.

Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or dispense medical advice on line. In order to determine what is causing the pain you should contact your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine the reason for the pain, and then provide treatment that will address the condition. You can use our foot pain self-assessment tool to help identify possible causes of the pain, but please understand that this is not meant to be a diagnostic tool, nor is it a substitute for consultation with a medical professional. Because you describe your pain as "extreme," we would suggest that you visit a physician at your earliest convenience. We hope you will do that, and that your pain will soon be relieved.
