I have had chronic problems with the arches of my feet for a long time. More recently, I’ve started experiencing a tremendous amount of pain in my toes, the balls of my feet, and the mid arch area whenever I walk or stand for a prolonged period of time. The best way to describe the pain is a feeling of weakness and soreness, like they’re about to give in at any moment. It is probably the worst in the big toe area, all the way through the arch. Once I stop walking, there’s an odd sort of cooling/burning sensation in the forefoot area.
This pain only comes on when I start walking or standing for a couple of minutes, and it gets worse as I continue activity. The pain is also present in both of my feet, although it’s worse in the left.
I’ve been told I have plantar fasciitis, but I have zero heel pain. My PT also said I have posterior tibial tendonitis, as i do have weakness in the ankle/achilles area as well, but I’m not sure how that makes my toes/forefoot hurt so much. MRI revealed zero issues, same with Xray, and rheumatology tests were negative.
I can’t even leave my apartment anymore, which is particularly odd seeing as I’m an otherwise healthy 27 year old male. Any help you have would be greatly appreciated, as I’m not sure what to do right now…
