Pain in Ball of Foot

Posted by Jeff D on 10/21/00 at 18:40 (030983)

I have had bi-lat PF for 21 months. Recently have begun having pain in ball of foot when walking. What could this be?

Hi Jeff,
I'm not a doctor, but with 21-month bilateral PF, have you been walking so that the ball of your foot carries more of the burden, in an effort to avoid putting weight on the heel? I think this is pretty common among us PFers and could explain your ball-of-the-foot pain. Think so?
