I’m a 27 yr old male in relatively good shape, other than this debilitating foot problem I’ve had for almost two years, of course. Whenever I walk or stand (especially walk), I have a throbbing pain throughout the arch of my foot and up to the metatarsals – basically everywhere north of the heel. It gradually gets worse the more I walk/stand. More recently, the pain has been localized in the middle area of the inner part of my arch. The pain is so bad that I cannot walk anymore. I have to limp to get around, and even that causes excruciating pain.
Things that trigger pain in the middle-inner arch of my foot. Note that I have this pain bilaterally, but it’s far worse in the left foot:
-walking more than a couple of steps
-standing for more than 5 minutes
-clenching my toes (especially big toe -- this instantly triggers the pain)
Any thoughts? I’m stuck in my apartment for the unforeseeable future until I can figure this out. Dr has ruled out neurological and rheumatological issues from recent testing. Also have a morton's neuroma in 3rd webspace (other side) but I'll save that issue for another day.
