See a foot doc: You could have a radiculopathy, you could have plantar fascitiis from altered gait secondary to the back problem. You could have ( hopefully not) a charcot foot developing. See a podiatrist.

Not unusual: 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), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), circulatory, musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
