I have been having problems with my left foot for almost a year. I have had xrays and they said it looked like an erosion or possibly gout. They checked the uric acid levels. My levels are normal. My physician said it is not gout. I have taken prednisone, mobic, cortisone injections , I am not responding to any treatment whatsoever. The pain is continuous on the side of my foot on the inside, feels like it is bruised. The pain is a stabbing pain. I have taken tylenol, aleve, ibuprofen. Nothing is helping.
