Probably not: These issues are separate although they may be caused by similar walking, running or movement related problems from poorly fitting footwear. See a podiatrist.

Probably: It might be because of an altered gait. When one foot is hurting, you start putting more weight on the other foot, causing problems in the "healthy" foot.

Related: It is usually the result of splinting off the sore foot and now the 'good' foot starts hurting. Speak to your surgeon and he/she will explain it and reassure you. Good luck with surgery.
