Severe Foot Pain... Outside, Ball & Across Top

I've had severe foot pain in one foot for over a year, and my insurance doesn't pay for me to see a specialist. The pain seems to be centered in the outside of my foot and the ball of my foot but when I stand on my foot or walk very much at all, the pain intensifies and seems to radiate all the way through my foot and across the top of my foot. There is no temperature change or swelling at all but the pain is so severe that I limp if I'm on my foot much at all. If I go to Wal-Mart supercenter or am on my feet much even in a small area, the pain becomes almost unbearable and my foot feels sore all the way through. The outer area seems stiff and I have heard a popping noise in my foot a few times which seem to be from the stiffness.

About 3 1/2 years ago, I had heel spur surgery in that same foot and he cut the muscle on the bottom of my foot to relieve tension so I've wondered if that could somehow be contributing to this. The surgery corrected the heel spur. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • possibly neuroma but watch out for the painful cortison shots. They left my toes partially number and sensitive to touch.
