Sharp Pain in between bones leading to pinky and fourth toe

Hello Folks, I have a sharp, linear-like pain in between my bones leading into the pinky and fourth toe. It feels as though there is a wire, or dental floss(!), being used to separate them. The pain does not go all the way through the foot. It gets worse when I stand and when I walk. Advil helps a bit but does not stop it.

I have had this before, many years ago. I convinced myself I had a vitamin A deficiency (without any knowledge) and decreased my fat intake while increasing my veggie intake. No idea if it was causal or correlational but over time it went away. Here I am again, wondering what to do to help me get my foot back 🙂

    Thank you for your question. Without examining you it is difficult for me to accurately diagnosis what may be causing your foot pain. I recommend seeing a Podiatrist who can more accurately assess and evaluate your foot. In the mean time I would minimize your activity and avoid any tight or constricting shoes that are putting excess pressure on the foot. Good luck!
