Welcome to HCM.It would help if you rule out gout by getting a serum uric acid test done,a examination of the affected foot by your Doctor/Orthopaedic Surgeon(OS) will help eliminate tenderness at thew metatarsal heads of 3rd and 4th toe/a Morton's neuroma/other local causes for the foot pain including stress fracture of the metatarsal/foot bones.A X-ray or CT/MRI Scan of the affected foot may be required.The treatment of the pain will depend on the cause,in the interim use of NSAIds like tylenol/Ibubrufen wuld help.
