Do You Need a Pain Doctor?

If you feel pain on your heel, it may be a sign of plantar fasciitis, which is an inflammation of the tissue that links the heel bone to your toes. It may also be a sign of heel spurs; irregular bone growths in your heel.

Pain in the Ball of Your Foot

The medical term for this sort of foot pain is metatarsalgia, and it refers to an inflammatory pain in the ball of your foot.

Arch pain, toe Pain, and pain on the outer edge of the foot

If the pain is in your toe, it may be a sign of gout, and it is usually felt in the big toe. When you feel pain on the outer edge of the foot, it may be that the fifth metatarsal bone is broken.


What Causes Foot Pain?

The following are the probable causes of foot pain:

  • Indulging in strenuous activities that put a lot of pressure on your feet, such as jumping and running
  • Wearing ill-fitting shoes, such as those with narrow toe box, or even high-heeled shoes (typical of women)
  • Indulging in high purine diet, which causes gout

You’ll need to get the right treatment for your foot pain because if you let the condition to progress further, you may end up being unable to walk comfortably, at least until you remedy the situation.
