Collapsed metatarsels

I keep getting severe shooting pain in my left metatarsels. I have been told that the metatarsel arch has collapsed. it ususally comes about if I have been sitting or standing still and then get up or move. It goes away after a while but remains tender for a day. It is increasing in frequency and my doctor says you have to live with it. Can anyone suggest a treatment - should I have an X-ray in case it is a fracture. Or is it age (54) - sob.

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
