Sounds like you : Hyperpronate and that your navicular is protruding. You may have an accessory navicular. Try wearing orthotics.

Hyperpronation?: Either plantar fasciitis or pes planus(flat feet) can certainly cause significant discomfort as well as wearing very high-heeled shoes that are constrictive while standing for long periods of time. For now, Tenis shoes are best or a low heel and not narrow pointed toes. Please follow up with your PCP for a podiatry,sports medicine , or orothopedics referral.

Sounds like: Sounds like you have flat feet with severely collapsed arches. This can cause the pain you're describing. Also the bone sticking out is probably your navicular bone. I recommend you get an evaluation by a local Podiatrist. Physical therapy is in order and you have to get and wear custom orthotics.
