Foot/toe pain - marathon runner

I am in training for my third marathon (one a year), coming up in January. I am suddenly experiencing a weird pain. It has at least similar affects as plantar fascitis, i.e. very tight in the morning. But the more I read, PF seems more in the heal. I am feeling almost an electrical sensation in my toes, and pain across the arch. I ran my first trail run about a month ago - lots of tree roots, etc. - overstrained my calf - but that seems to be better. I think my foot injury started in that time frame. I have no heel pain at all. More in the forefoot/toes and inside arch. I am thinking metatarsalgia? Any thoughts/recommendations? BTW, I wear custom orthotics (from my sports chiropractor).

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
