4th surgery??

I have been fighting foot pain for almost 4 years. Here is what has happened:
Jan 2001- twisted ankle, healed quickly (I thought and I forgot about it)
March 2001 - primary care dr. said problem in foot was arthritis, so I dropped the matter while pain continued
Spring 2002 - pain began to move up leg
Summer 2002 -complained again to primary care dr. who ran tests with no finding for source of pain
Aug. 2002 - began seeing poditrist who diagnosed neuroma and began shots (first to try to revive the nerve and then to try to kill it)
Dec. 2002 - surgical removal of neuroma
Jan. 2003 - pain continued
Feb. 2003 - physical therapy to reduce scar tissue
April. 2003 - surgical removal of another neuroma and bone spur (following surgery a hematoma developed and incision healing was very slow)
June 2003 - infection at incision
July 2003 - more physical therapy
Aug 2003 - RSD - drugs, exercise, more therapy
Nov. 2003 - tendonitis, then capsulitis
Dec 2003 - continued swelling, began use of custom orthodics
Jan 2004 - MRI
Feb 2004 - tarsal tunnel release (dr. said he had found site of original injury in my ankle, then I remembered the twisted ankle)
March 2004 - continued pain - physical therapy
April 2004 - pain getting worse
May 2004 - MRI - possibly another neuroma, dr. beginning shots again....also, possible planter facia (heal pain since last surgery) and some tendonitis remains

contributing factors: extremely high arch and I under pronate severly

Any thoughts as to what other problems could be there causing the problems? What else do we look for? Any thoughts at all?
