Shooting pain in foot.

I've lived with this for a while but it seems to be gradually getting worse.

Whenever I push hard for a section, my right foot (and only my right) has a cramp like sensation in the ball of my little toe, this then becomes a shooting pain down the outside of my foot until I ease off.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

I know my feet tend to point outwards slightly (there is a medical reason behind this, and its currently being dealt with). Though im not sure if it is something stupid like pedals,shoes etc.

Im currently using Time ATAC XS pedals with Time MXT shoes. The tension is set to the lowest setting on the pedals.

Any sugestions? as its currently greatly effecting my riding.

  • Out or curiosity, would it be as simple as moving the cleat further down (ie the other set of holes).

    As pain in the ball of the feet usualy is indicative of applying too much pressure in that region for prolonger periods. (according to various sites online).

    Otherwise getting new shoes with a better fit seem another solution, but the shoes have been used for longer than i've had a problem.

    Also its not just applicable to cycling.

    I ithnk I'll move the cleat down and get it looked at when i can.
