Did you consult an orthopedic surgeon? If not I would suggest you to visit a reliable orthopedist and have an X ray of your feet. I would suggest you to visit Lewis Orthopaedics. They provide affordable services.

I agree w/davisjone that you need to see a physician.   However, if you are lacking medical insur. then an orthopedic appt. can be very expensive.  I would start w/your family practice MD and have him evaluate and examine your foot.  This is a good place to start and he/she can make sure you see the correct specialist if you find that this is a  worrisome problem.
Just thinking about the $$ impact if no insurance. Family MD's are totally qualified to examine, xray and evaluate your need for a specialist.
Good luck!
