Hi Teresa, think you should see your GP with this as it is known to have pain in the hands and feet, but it should be investigated properly.

Try hot and cold application to the spot.

Hope you find relief

hi Teresa, the gp said mine was bursitis, I put a rolled up pair of soft cotton socks under it to ease it, hope that helps.

ahhhhh...... thanks sandra that makes sense i have bursa's on my hips soooo why not have one on the foot i will go get it checked out, thanks for the tip xx


made an appointment for today to get it looked at as sooooo paiful now x


I've had it for years. Cant bear anyone to touch my feet as they're so painful. Need to have the nail on my little toe cutting but can't bear my husband to do it for me as the bones in my feet are so painful to touch. Sometimes I get a sharp pain in my big toes as though I have stood on a pin. Am fed up moaning to GP with other problems so just put up with it. Besides everytime you go they put it down to Fibro.


been to see gp he believes its to do with the neuropathy i have due to my diabetes, says all he can say is i will have to put up with it as the pregablin has only just been upped to 75mg Grrrrrrreatttttttt !!!!!!!
