    I broke my foot 20 yrs ago hospital told me it wasn't broken I tried walk on it for 2 yrs til they said it was broken. last 10 yrs really bad until I asked doc to cut it off he said ankle replacement that was 8 months ago it's still pain so more to do. I would find an orthopedic doctor that can offer to do something for you or get you onto a pain management doctor that can do something for pain.

    Good luck.
