Possible: It might be something called a morton's neuroma- which usually occurs between your 4th and 5th toes. Try a metatarsal pad from the pharmacy and put it closer to the middle part of your foot. If it works use it until it quiets down- if not- see a foot specialist for a proper evaluation and treatment plan.

Possible neuroma: Could be a pinched nerve or intermetatarsal neuroma. While more common between the 3rd and 4th toes, it certainly is common enough. Visit your friendly neighborhood podiatrist for an examination.
