Foot pains

Posted by Andrea W. on 7/01/03 at 16:07 (123356)

I was wondering if someone could help me here....for the past two or three months, I have experienced intense pain on the underside of my toes on my right foot... There are times when I cannot even put shoes on because I cannot straighten the toes! Or there have been times when I cannot walk with my foot flat on the ground, because of the pain! I have never been a runner, a dancer, or anything that would strain my feet, but yet, they hurt so very badly.
I came from a very strict religious upbringing where doctors were prohibitted! Which is why I thought that i would see what you had to say first. Do you have any idea what it may be that is causing the pain?
Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated! Please email me with any....thank you!

Hi Andrea:

It should be x-rayed. It sounds like it could be a stress fracture.
