Answer

Of course, we can't diagnose online, but from the symptoms you describe, one possibility you might discuss with your doctor is something called Morton's Neuroma.

It is a thickening or swelling and inflammation of the tissues surrounding the nerve, usually between the third and fourth toe. It can cause pain into the toe and is aggravated by tight-fitting shoes.

Your family doctor may refer you to an orthopedic physician or a podiatrist.
