Mild foot pain can react well to self care and take several weeks or months to improve. Arthritis is a common cause of joint pain and injury to the nerves may result in intense burning, numbness, or tingling (peripheral neuropathy). Patients should seek medical attention if the pain is intense and lasts longer than a few days. Seek emergency medical attention if you hear a crack, are motion impaired, or have severe swelling.
