Strange foot pain

I've been trying to figure this out online all day. So far, the only thing I'm coming up with is Diabetes II. That's possible since both my parents and one of my brothers has it. But I did a self test I read about and that seemed to indicate I don't have it (yet. I'm sure I'll have it someday)

So, I figured I'd come here for suggestions. Maybe someone here might have an idea of what I should look into.

On the balls of both my feet, just below the space between my big toe and the next, I have a hard bump. I originally assumed they were plantar warts as I've had and treated those before, but MANY treatments later, they are both still there. I've done the freeze off kind, the liquid kind, etc. This has been going on for a looong time. Maybe 6-12 months or more.

About 3 months ago, I started getting pain in the balls of both my feet when I take my first several steps of the morning. It's a general pain across the whole ball of my foot, not just around the bumps. It's like a stretching pain in an area that doesn't want to stretch. Somewhat like small stabbing pains across the area. It's pretty painful, but I have figured out how ot get through it. After a few minutes, the pain stops and the areas just tingle a bit the rest of the day.

  • I have similar problems with my foot in the morning if I exercise the day before. My mom is a medical transcriptionist and I told her this and she said, "It's plantar fascitis". Look it up and see if it matches your symptoms.
