Burning and Swelling under 2nd metatarsal

I pivoted on my left foot 1.5 years ago and felt a sharp pain under my 2nd metatarsal when I did so. It was sore for a few days but got better. Over the next 4 months I could feel a slight movement of the tendon/area under my second metatarsal everytime I steped on it, no pain though. Slowly that grew into a larger and larger lump. It then began to be swollen and burn on my big toe, 2nd and 3rd metatarsal. I got orthodics, then 3 cortisone injections, and finally a nueroma removed between 2nd and 3rd metatarsal. No improvement. In fact, since the nueroma removal things feel much worse. I am 2 months post op now. What to do...? Gets worse as day goes on...
