Re: Can pain in the ball of the foot and arch be caused by a bunion?

: I'm sorry but you have me confused. Did you initially fracture a sesamoid bone?

: Generally when a patient tells me they feel electricity in their foot I consider nerve entrapments such as a Morton's neuroma, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome.

: Why don't you get another opinion?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<

Thanks for your reply to my question.
YEs, I fractured the foot first. Not sure which bone was fractured, but it was near the area that bunions form (below the big toe)

What kind of doctor should I see for another opinion? A podiatrist or an orthopedist?

Thanks again.
