Pain across ball of foot

I have been having pain across the ball of my foot for a few months. More so when I wear any shoes other than flip-flops. Feels like bones are grinding together, causing pain, numbness. Hurts alot when I walk on uneven ground. My 2,3 and 4 the toes go numb. The pain can be excruciating.

    Hello and thank you for your question. Sounds like you are describing neuromas which can be quite painful and often associated with numbness in the digits. I suggest startng by releasing your feel on a golf ball or rad roller at least 5 minutes a day followed by corrrect toes and using a metatarsal pad. If your pain persists after a week of this then I’d suggest seeing a Podiatrist who can better evaluate you and see if a steroid injection is indicated. I hope this helps.
