Not necessarily . : Not necessarily . Can be anything related to the forefoot, including but not limited to tendinitis , metatarsalgia, capsulitis or even a stress fracture. Need to have it seen by a physician if the pain doesn't subside.

Yes could be.: Or it could be flexor tendonitis. Actually probably more likely.
