Possible sesamoiditi: pain under the first metatarsal can be a sesamoidiitiss . This condition is related to improper shoe gear If you are performing more kneel in or squatting this condition will increase. You should wear more rigid soled shoe gear. If that does kit help then you will need to have an X-ray and be evaluated. Good luck
