Metatarsalgia

Last Jan, 2002 I was diagnosed as being diabetic, Type II. However, my blood glucose level has not been too high, and with medication have kept my numbers below 120 over the past 6 mos. However, over the past 6 mos I have developed a cramping in the balls of both feetm mostly under my middle to small toes -sometime over as far as my big toe. It usually gets worse as the day progresses and at night when I get home from work. It is relieved considerably when I sleep, but resumes when I get up in the morning. I massauge my feet several times during the day, but this provides only very short temporary relief. I have wide toed shoes, with soft soles, but this seems to make no difference. I also have a bad back with a buldging disc at L-4 L-5, which has caused severe cramping and spasms in my back. When I have brought the foot problem to the attention of several doctors they really don't seem to have an answer or any suggestion for relief. Any suggestions besides seeing a podiatrist re orthodics. Thanks
Nick
