Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It will be better if your age, other conditions, profession, recreation, alcohol intake and dietary pattern are known. The causes can be divided into two major groups.

  1. Group 1: Based on anatomic problems like toe deformities, Morton's metatarsalgia, length and mobility issues, improper footwear, stress fractures, arthritis, etc.
  2. Group 2: Biochemical issues like hyperuricemia, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, infection, etc. Blood investigations and at the least a plain x-ray of the foot will be desirable before more details can be given.
