How old are you? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Exactly where is the pain in your foot? Any skin change? If so, can you attach the photos here? Does anything make it better or worse? On a scale of 0-10, what is it with 0 being no pain and 10 being the strongest pain? What is it like? When did it start? Is it getting worse? Swelling? Redness? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any other medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?

It seems to be osteoarthritis. You should take stronger pain medication, intraarticular glucocorticoids, or intraarticular hyaluronate injections, and use a cane and a walker, which can reduce joint forces at the hip by as much as 50 percent. Soft, elastic-heeled sports shoes may also be used to diminish impact loading. You should lose weight with diet and exercise such as swimming. If they don't work, you should consider surgery if necessary.
