  • I injured the ball of my left foot a couple of years ago – just behind toes number 3 & 4. This has lead to numbness and agonizing pain whenever I wear shoes. The podiatrist has given me insoles, stating that stability is the cause. I agree with him on this – my stability is non-existent. However, is there nothing to be done about the pain and numbness in the toes? Will I forever have to live with this pain? It’s to the point I can’t wear any shoes without the insoles and even then it does not relieve the pain 100%.
