Metatarsal heads dropping - any cures please?!
12:45pm, 29 Oct 2012
JubearI hijacked the NHS Fizz while seeing her about something else, and she told me that stabbing nerve pain I get between my toes/under the ball of my "good" foot is the metatarsal heads dropping and squeezing the nerve against the sesamoid. She recommended arch supports - I already run in custom orthotics which are 4 years old and probably worn out (diagnosed for an ITB issue) - so I got the over the counter jobbies that she advised for my ordinary shoes and off I went.
The pain is not gone, and I've had to abandon my lunchtime walk today. I'm living in trainers because of this particular pain, it twangs even more in normal boots and shoes.
Shouldn't the orthotics address the problem straight away? Am I being impatient?
Should I bother my GP?
BTW I admit to being overweight by about 14lbs, but have been for years and years...

and an observation that Google is *not* your friend. I'm off to the garage with a hacksaw.
