Willem there are a few conditions that spring to mind namely inflammation of the foot toe joints (synovitis or capsulitis) tendinitis or a trapped nerve between the metatarsal heads called a Morton`s neuroma. There is also a condition called a fractured metatarsal plate which is a disruption of the fat pad beneath the metatarsal heads..
