Excruciating Foot Pains


Dear Doctor Emily,
For the last couple years I have been having really bad pains in my feet. They feel like stabbing, throbbing pains and they will hit me really hard and painfully but then they will go away just as fast as they came. They last for about 2 minutes or so. Then today I experiences a really sharp pain around the ball of my foot and around my toes. I dont like my feet touched AT ALL, so that’s why I haven’t gone to the doctor. Do you have any idea what might be causing this? After the new pain I experienced today, I’m not sure I can take it anymore.

    Thank you for your question Erica and sorry to hear you are experiencing pain.

    Pain, especially in the feet, can be caused by a myriad of different reasons. This makes it very difficult for me to diagnosis the cause of your pain without assessing you. As much as you do not want your feet touched, I think it is in your best interest to go see a Poditrist.

    A Podiatrist will be able to fully assess for biomechaical, neurological, immunological and vascular causes for pain. In the mean time, try to track what makes your foot pain increase and what specifically provides relief. This information will be valuable when you see the Podiatrist. Good luck!
