Hello-

Have your orthopedic doctors given you a diagnosis? (Sciatica, tarsal tunnel, neuropathy, etc)?

Have they done MRIs?

Have they done EMG and nerve conduction studies?

OK. Thanks for the answer.

I think it would be helpful if your doctors consider the further testing for issues such as:

sciatica

lumbar radiculopathy

peripheral neuropathy

tarsal tunnel

which are nerve related conditions which could cause pain that feels like it is in the foot.

(I presume that since you have seen orthopedic doctors, they have ruled out ankle and foot issues such as fractures, and inflammation issues, such as plantar fasciitis already).

A nerve conduction study and EMG testing can be helpful to see if this is related to a nerve issue.

I would discuss this with your orthopedic surgeon -- and get a referral to a foot and ankle doctor as well (if you haven't already) to get tarsal tunnel evaluated.
