Default Stabbing intermittent pain on side of foot

It's been several days now that I suddenly get sharp, stabbing pains on the outside of my left foot - about half way between the toes & heel. Nothing helps when an attack is on! Sometimes, it's so bad that I actually yelp in pain. The pain seems to last about 30 seconds or less and occurs in clusters throughout the day. It's completely debilitating and brings me to my knees!

I experienced the same symptoms a few months ago but they went away on their own after about two weeks. I don't want this to become a chronic problem.

I've searched online and entered my symptoms, but no one seems able to tell me what it is or how to make it go away. Please help!

I too have recently developed this issue. Have you found what caused this? Do you still have the pain? Have you seen a physician?
I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Hi,

It's not really appropriate to give a diagnosis over the inter, i would reccomend that you both see a podiatrist or foot specialist, especially given the severity of the pain.

I can give you general information once you have the diagnosis, but there are too many variables to be sure of what it might be.

I get a stabbing pain in my toe after I have worn shoes that hurt my feet. It can be any toe as it depends on which toe was crushed the most or rubbed the most when walking
etc. My pain is a severe short stabbing pain which lasts for about 2 seconds or less. The problem is that it comes back in 30 second intervals and I can't sleep at all unless I take some strong pain killers but they don't kick in for hours. Once I wake up the pain is usually gone until I go golfing again or dancing etc. I try to change shoes but then it rubs on another toe and it can happen again. This has only happened to me the last couple of years and only about 8 times. Since I am slightly diabetic and have some neuropathy (nerve damage or worn out nerves) my feet get sore very easily I am almost 70 now. Al S
