Metatarsalgia (or metatarsal syndrome) is a condition that is very similar to the more common wrist condition called carpal tunnel syndrome. In the context of feet, this condition is characterized by inflammation around the metatarsal bones of your toes and causes considerable pain and discomfort in the ball of the foot. Fortunately, getting properly-fitted for footwear and using orthotic shoe inserts from your foot doctor can alleviate metatarsal syndrome and many other problematic conditions.
Since pain and discomfort in the ball of the foot may be a result of other conditions that have similar symptoms to metatarsalgia, it’s important to see your foot doctor for the proper diagnosis.
