Please could someone give me some advise. have the most terrible pains under the ball of my feet i cand understand because my heels are fine just the front part even when i lay down with my feet up it still hurts.
I do ballroom dancing three times a week but wear dancing shoes, I also had a bunion removed a year ago and since then I cannot wear high or uncomfitable shoes so im sure it cannot be my shoes.
Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include stress fractures, ligament/ tendon injuries, infections, inflammations like fasciitis etc, spur formation, heel fat pad syndrome, arch issues etc. It is advised to consult an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile it is advised to rest the foot and avoid weight bearing. You could also use some OTC NSAIDS for pain relief.
Hope this helps.
