pain under ball of my foot - not while walking

Posted by vickip on 1/14/02 at 11:07 (069956)

Dear Doctor:
I recently started a formal exercise plan with a personal trainer and am walking on the tredmil about 40 minutes a week. I have recently developed pain under the ball of my foot. It hurts mostly when I am not walking. Last time I had this pain, I went to a podiatrist, then an orthopedist who diagnosed me with sesamoiditis. It went away but I think it is back. Will orthotics help? What else can I do? I also had planter fasciatis in the past and wear special orthopedic-type shoes.
