I have throbbing pain in left leg to the top of foot. Could this be sciatic nerve problem? I am 78 years of age.

Throbbing pain foot: Certainly not the classic way sciatica presents or's diagnosed but with the right REST of the history together with other symptoms & how problem's evolved- sciatica MAY be on the short list of possibilities.

I have pain on the middle part of my feet where their is a bone. it is a sharp throbbing pain.   What can i do?
