I just returned from the podiatrist and now know what is going on with my foot. I have ostearthritis and have lost the cartilage between the base of my second toe and the first joint from the foot as well as my third toe. That, along with the ostearthritis along the top of the foot is the cause for the burning and the pain. The doctor put me on some medication, their office is checking with my insurance company to see how much the insurance will cover custom inserts when I am not wearing my Danskos or Sketchers. It is nice to know that I have be doing the right things and this was not because of something I did. I will go out and get new gym shoes today because I know that they need replacing. The doctor also said to avoid impact cardio, so what I have been doing for the past two weeks is the proper way to go. Now I wait and see what the insurance company says about the inserts, shop for more good shoes, and get new gym shoes.
