Some runners have experienced pain in the bottom of their foot. Metatarsalgia, or better know as the ball of the foot pain, is actually a common injury in runners. Having a lot pressure on your forefoot can cause pain and inflammation in your metatarsals which is the long bones in the front of your feet, just below your toes.
Morton’s neuroma- is an injury to the nerve between the toes, which causes thickening and pain. When you walk it feel like you have a pebble stuck in your shoe, or feel like you are walking on a little ball. Using insoles in your shoes- Using some moleskin, or Metatarsalgia insoles will help absorb some shock when you run so your foot doesn’t receive all of the force.
Over-the-counter pain reliever- Taking something like Advil, or Aleve can help ease the pain. Get one of these toe separators(men asks your wives for it) and squeeze your toes together for 5 seconds and release, repeat 10-12 times.


When your toes are squeezed together too often and for too long, the nerve that runs between your toes can swell and thicken.
I have actually been bugged by some pain in my feet lately — likely need a new pair of shoes. I have these symptoms, but ONLY when running and it only starts after about an hour or running.

Morton’s neuroma may feel as if you are standing on a pebble in your shoe or on a fold in your sock. As a runner, I believe running in properly fitted shoes with good arch support and proper cushioning is extremely important.


I ran 4 miles last night, after a couple of weeks off and experienced the same pain all day. I have had foot surgery for bunion and hammer toe on the right foot and now have a non union (for 7 years) from that surgery.
Yes I waited 6 days and went to emerg (small town), on naproxen and no running for 1 more week. Be safe out there and try the tape for preventative measures once you’re all healed up. You can follow the same treatment steps above but if it persists or gets worse, a Doctor might suggest a different approach.
