Re: Ball of foot pain

I heve had pain in the ball of my right foot since Dec. 29th. I have been out of work since that time. I am a nurse and on my feet 8-12 hours a day 3 days a week. My podiatrist has tried padding my foot. I now wear metatarsal pads in my tennis shoes and today he put a walking air cast on. What is your opinion on the next step i.e cortisone, or treatment. It appears to be capsulitis/neuroma.
