No OTC insoles!: With tarsal coalition, I would highly recommend prescribed custom orthotics, not the over the counter ones you purchase in the stores. For this unfortunately you really need to consult your podiatrist.

Plantar fasciitis: We usually don't start with something like the Tenex procedure for plantar fasciitis. Typical standard of care treatments should first include shoe modification, stretching exercises, orthotics, pain medication, injections, taping. If all fail, then other forms of treatment modalities can then be utilized.

Fungal Infection: Toenails infected with fungus tend to exhibit abnormal growth appearance, such as increased thickness and ingrown toenails. I would see your podiatrist to have the toenail debrided properly. If there is an ingrown toenail, it needs to be removed.

May not work: You need to have your foot re-evaluated by another foot specialist. It's best to know what caused the nerve damage to that area of your foot first, prior to treatment. This may be simply from bad foot mechanics or shoes.

Need xray: You should really get a xray to make sure there are no fractures from your injury, which I presume was an inversion ankle sprain. With these sprains, fracture of the styloid process of the 5th metatarsal bone is common.
