I'm 38 yr old male. About 10 years ago I was diagnosed w/costochronditis due to stress. I hasnt bothered me much over the years. Recently I've come under alot more stress and in addition to it flaring back up...I'm also getting frequent shooting pains in my left foot, usually in my toes/arch area. I've had a history of slightly high blood pressure in the past also. Could the foot pain be a warning sign? I've seen chest and arm pain associated w/heart attacks, but havent read anything about it extending that low
I usually associate foot pain with neuropathy or gout. I encourage you to see your physician as soon as possible to rule out anything more serious, like a blood clot or infection.
Best of luck,
