Metatarsalgia is an extreme swelling and inflammation in the balls of the feet, which usually happens because of some kind of external and physical injury. Athletes or people who do a lot of skipping, jumping, or wear the wrong kinds of shoes are prone to getting the same. Sharp and aching pain in the joints, swelling in ball of the feet and worsening of the pain are common symptoms.
HOW IS METATARSALGIA DIAGNOSED?
The doctor may examine your feet and evaluate your symptoms first. The doctor will ask you about your lifestyle and activity level. A foot X-ray may help identify Metatarsalgia and rule out other foot problems

The treatment includes:
• rest for feet
• use an ice pack
• change of footwear
