Neuropathy : Neuropathy may not be seen on MRI. Especially of small distal nerves. Symptoms may be consistent with tarsal tunnel compression. Recommend seeing physiatrist (PMR medicine) or podiatrist.

It also sounds like something called a neuroma, which is quite common in the foot from many years of ill fitting shoes and bad foot mechanics. Needs to see a podiatrist.
