Foot pain which is not specific.

I am a 23 year old man and ever since i can remember i have had this pain in my foot, it is occasional it comes and goes and i dont know the exact reason for it but i guess it is when the under of my foot gets wet and cold, it usually occurs on my right foot and rarely it gets in both the feet, describing about the pain it doesnot have a point it is like spread all over the foot but the left side of the right foot in the area between the arches is one place where the pain always stays and also the talus area of the foot ( i dont know if its called that i found it off the internet), the pain sometimes radiate upwards between the tibia but that is occasional, i dont know how to describe the pain when i touch the places i have no pain there, its not a pain that occurs when injured its sort of a pain that i cant explain to anyone, the pain is not severe it i would give it 6 out if 10, it bothers me a lot. When i have tried to expain it to others noone understood it, the frequence of this pain is almost 6 times per month and also i have had several months without the pain at all, and one more thing i dont know whether its worth mentioning its that my under foot and the palm of my hands get cold really fast if i sit in a 22 degree celtius room my hands and foot would be really cold. I apologize for my English i am from india and am not so good in explaing things. Thank you for hearing my question

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Based on how you are describing your symptoms it sounds more like nerve pain versus soft tissue (tendon, ligaments). The nerve that passes through the inside of the foot is called the tibial nerve and it passes through the tarsal tunnel.

    Sometimes patients can present with “tarsal tunnel syndrome’ which is like ‘carpal tunnel syndrome”. If you have not seen a Podiatrist yet I would get a full biomechanical evaluation. I often see tarsal tunnel nerve symptoms in patients who have over-pronation or navicular drop. There are some vitamins that are nerve protective which you can research including Metanx L-methyl folate and alpha lipoic acid.

    I hope this helps!
