Metatarsalgia pain is located in the forefoot or ball of foot that can range from a dull to sharp pain or feeling of a rock in your shoe.

Definition   Pain in the metatarsal region of the foot caused by conditions of "fallen metatarsal arch", "ball of foot" pain, Morton's Neuroma (irritated nerve endings), and bursitis.
Causes Repetitive strain, excessive running and/or poor biomechanics may lead to metatarsalgia.
Symptoms Pain in the forefoot region, especially felt when walking or running.
Treatment Seek evaluation from a medical professional. Rest and keep weight off of foot as much as possible. Stretch the calf muscles (soleus, gastrocnemius). Use metatarsal pads to provide a comfortable lift to the central metatarsal heads. Click for Calf stretch and strengthening exercises
