Peace, the most common cause is probably inflammation in or around the nerves that supply the foot, but it might be due to a problem with the blood supply or the nerves in the foot. This is why the best would be to see a doctor and make sure that it isn’t due to something like diabetes or a nerve disorder. In the meantime he can try taking a long-acting anti-inflammatory like Coxflam®. Good luck.
