Many things: Trauma, biomechanical problem, infection, arthritity, neuropathy and poor circulation are some. Too many to mention. If a perstent problem, see podiatrist.

The Foot: Is a complicated architectural marvel that doesn't get enough respect. The list of things that can cause foot pain is too long to list here, and sometimes, what we think is foot pain is really caused by something else, like a nerve problem with the lower back. If you're having foot pain, your best initial approach is to see a podiatrist. Good luck!
Dr. Payam Rafat
Podiatry 22 years experience
Many possibilities: Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis, tight shoes), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
