Severe sharp pain under the foot. Difficulty in walking and driving. Have bunion. Advice?

Good afternoon, Suddenly yesterday afternoon I experienced pain deep inside the arch in my left foot heading towards the big toe (I do have a bunion ). Walking and driving a manual car is very painful. When not walking I have no pain what so ever and even forget about the painful foot until I get up and start to walk again. What are you thoughts on this?

Thanks for writing to us.
The sudden pain that you had is likely to be related to a muscle spasm or inflammation of the great toe. You need to get your blood uric acid levels evaluated and take mild pain killers and do a hot fomentation for symptomatic relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
