Hello, I want to find out what is causing the severe pain I get in the balls of my feet. I run on average 7 miles a day but I always have done and didn’t used to have this issue. It now seems to be getting worse and sometimes after running I cannot walk properly on it. After playing football yesterday it seems to be the worse it has got. After doing research online it looks like it may be just Metatarsalgia as that is what the symptoms look like. Do you have any advice and do I need to see anyone as it’s very painful and I do have a few days of rest but then it comes back as painful again. The left one is the really painful one and is very swollen.
