Sharp pulsating pain in foot

Hi, For the last week or so, i get this sudden sharp and pulsating pain in my foot, the inner arch area (left feet). I looked at a foot muscle diagram to identify the area and it looks like the abductor hallucis area where the pain is located.
The pain hits suddenly without warning, lasts for 5-10 seconds. Or comes and goes about twice or thrice in a minute.. and then nothing for hours or even days. But its happening once a day at least for the last three days.
The occurrence has no pattern. I could be sitting, or standing or lying down or watching tv... and when it does come, its quite crippling and very painful. What can this be?

How is the pain now? Have you seen a podiatrist? If you are still having the pain, I strongly suggest you see one soon.

See a podiatrist. Their stature in the M.D. community is often diminished, but they know exactly what they are doing in regards to diagnosing foot pain.
