    Ball of my foot is killing me, can barely walk-help

    So I woke up Sunday morning and could barely walk. Is gotten worse

    I am always barefoot or in flip flops. I run in Saucony's and bike and lift 5-6 days a week

    The only thing I've dine different is wear high heels Saturday night to an event. Haven't worn heels in a while and I think that's what did "it".

    Don't know what to do. Can't workout, hurts to walk. The mornings are the worse.

    I am doing the Tough muddier in 6 weeks and was really looking forward to a fun day with friends

    Help me get better.

    Plantar fasciitis: Symptoms -
    Plantar Faciitis. Would be heel pain, stiff under side and could also cause tight calf muscles.

    Metatarsalgia would describe the ball of the foot.

    Ball of the foot sounds like it could be Morton's Neuroma. The metatarsals pinch the nerve and create a growth. It can be really painful. I got mine from running in shoes too narrow for my foot, but numerous docs have also said I was structurally set up to get one.

    High heels are also a common cause for neuromas. Some will go away with rest, others are there to stay. I hope you don't have one, but it took me a long time to figure out what I had, so if this is it, at least you know.

    Good luck.

    I've known a few people who after going barefootish, have had plantar fascitis. If it persists, see what the doc says
