Painful feet during workouts

The last year or two i have had horrible pain in my feet during my workout at the gym. Because of a knee injury, i only run on the eliptical machine; the other day i decided to try the recumbant bike which immediately sent shocking pain through my feet. I thought it was ill-fitting shoes, but they even hurt during Yoga (when I am barefoot)-in fact, they might even hurt MORE during yoga. I am barefoot at home, and wear flip-flops most days of the year (I hate wearing shoes). The pain starts, usually, along side my arch on the outer-middle portion of the bottom of my foot-both feet. The pain quickly engulfs the entire bottom of my foot, as it subsides that middle area is the last part to hurt. It starts as a sore/burning type of pain then turns to a shooting/stabbing pain; sometimes it hurts so bad I could swear my shoe is full of blood (of course there is never ANY marks).
any ideas? how do I stop this pain? Im a tuff girl, but this pain just about breaks me down!

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
