undiagnosed foot pain

About 6 months ago pain developed in the ball of my foot, concentrated on the second and fourth metatarsal. I've had several x'-rays, an mri, a caste on for 8 weeks at one point. No sign of stress fractures, only significant inflamation. The latest x-ray showed that the heads of the bones had significant thinning (which could be due to lack of use). It is not getting any better despite RICE. Prior to the onset I was a very active person (cycling, hiking, weight training). Now I can bearly walk. I take 600-800 mgs Ibuprofen 3x daily. I am 35 years old, 6'1", 185 lbs. Any ideas?
