foot pain

I have had a spot on the ball of my left foot for 35 years. I have been to several dr.s. One called it plantar warts and cut it out and it grows back. One tried freezing it off which did absolutely now but hurt real bad. I just lived with it for years until my right foot started doing the same thing. I went to another Dr. he said my bone was growing to low causing the pain I would have to have surgery to correct, so I did. The pain I had before the surgery was totally different than the pain I now have. Now my foot hurts even when laying down, my left foot in particular tingles , I have constant pain and sometimes I get spasms. I can no longer squat. the pain seems to go up my legs into my back until I get terrible headaches. Is there anything I could do to prevent this. Could it be since the dr. moved my bone up so i would step on it that he pinced a nerve. any suggestions please. The other foot just had infection in it when he opened it, if that helps.

    Thank you for the question Gerri Ann.

    Without examining you I cannot exactly diagnosis what is going on, but I will do my best to guide you in a better direction. No surgery is without risk of complications, including an increase in pain or different pain. When surgical incisions are made, small nerves must be cut which can lead to numbness, tingling, burning and other sensations.

    If you are having your symptoms when laying down and not bearing weight then I would suspect it is related to the nerves. I would recommend seeing a neurologist or speaking to your Podiatrist about these symptoms and possible scar tissue in the area.

    Good luck!
