Question Sharp stabbing pain along the side of left foot

Hi can someone please shed some light on what might be wrong with my foot please? About 18 months ago, I had plantar fascists. My GP was no help, just telling me to lose weight. I ended up googling it, found out how to tape it, and succeeded in getting rid of the pain. However, just lately, whenever I have to walk anywhere, I find that, every so often, I get a sharp pain (like I've literally been stabbed in the foot) that is so bad it stops me in my tracks and I have to stand still and wait for the pain to subside before I can carry on. Last time it happened, my partner and I actually heard it crack.
If I go back to the GP all he will say is lose weight. He's not very helpful, as he attributes most things to the fact that, yes, I am overweight. His attitude doesn't help much in that respect, yet he's good with other problems.
I would like to get an idea of what's wrong so I can look it up, like I did the PF, and fix it myself, or at the very least, know what to say to my GP, so I don't go in to him being vague!
Thanks for any suggestions

Google "baxters neuritis" or "baxters nerve entrapment" - does it sound like that?

It's around the right area, but I don't think that's it, but I did see something about a nerve named peronal or something like that, which seemed to fit the bill, however, I can't remember the exact name of it, and can't find the article again either! Aaarrrggghhhh!
