new foot pain - in addition to PF

Posted by Robbie on 7/21/05 at 09:20 (178765)

I have been suffering from PF pain for a few months now. A few days ago I developed a strong, stinging pain in the ball of my foot under my 3rd and 4th toes after doing some of my non-weight bearing stretching. It hurts when I sit, stand, walk, drive. Basically it hurts all the time. It is a strong, intense, constant pain and has been going on for almost 48 hours now. I went to the chiropractor that does ART on me and he thinks it is an irriated nerve and to rest for a week and ice. Is this the correct treatment? Should I be doing something else? With this type of pain should I see a podiatrist or just give it a few days to see if it calms down? The skin does not appear swollen or red. Thanks!
