Metatarsalgia is an umbrella term for a painful forefoot and although a known termit isnt a specific diagnosis as many thing can cause pain in this area. I suggest you see either a podiatrist or a foot and ankle orthopeadist to give you the correct diagnosis
To get referred to a podiatrist please call the SA Podiatry assn 0861 100 249
