See my last post for update: Hello Docs and fellow BFRs! I need some help with pain! I have been barefoot running for a little over 2 years, with a season max of 20 miles per week or so. In October 2011, I developed a strain/sprain of my right foot and couldn't run for almost 2 months. I started back to running in early December, but developed pain in the second metatarsal head of myleft foot, so I stopped running. I generally wear minimally soled shoes (such as Stems sneakers or moccasins) and the pain has continued to increase, despite no running and taking Advil. Last week I fashioned a metatarsal pad for myself with some foam and have it taped behind the 2nd and 3rd metatarsal heads on the sole of my foot. This helps somewhat with the discomfort, but not much. I do have Morton's toe, and the second metatarsal head is about 1/4" longer than the first, on both feet. I have callusing under the second metatarsal head, that I have been trying to manage with pumice stones, but the area is definitely "thicker" than under the first met. Any other suggestions for treatment and prevention?
