Common causes of stabbing foot pain

 Feet are complex, and any number of issues can trigger stabbing pain in one or both feet. A few of the most common causes of stabbing pain are plantar fasciitis, nerve damage, and acute injuries.

Injury, overuse or conditions causing inflammation involving any of the bones, ligaments or tendons in the foot can cause foot pain. Arthritis is a common cause of foot pain. Injury to the nerves of the feet may result in intense burning pain, numbness or tingling (peripheral neuropathy).

How to ease foot pain at home

1. Apply ice to the affected area.

2. Take an over-the-counter (OTC) pain reliever.

3. Use foot pads to prevent rubbing on the affected area.

4. Elevate the foot that's causing you to have pain.

5. Rest your foot as much as possible.


The feet are especially prone to poor circulation because they're so far away from the heart. Diabetes-related nerve pain can appear in the hands, but most people who experience it feel it in their feet first.

Go to an urgent care or ER for foot pain if:

 You have severe pain and swelling. You are unable to walk or put weight on your foot. Have an open wound (Emergency room only) Have signs of infection such as redness, warmth or tenderness (Emergency room only)

Who do you consult?

If you have any issues that involve the foot and or ankle—a sports injury, arthritis/joint pain, skin problems, etc. —a visit to the podiatrist is your best bet. A podiatrist is a specialist who manages and treats almost all symptoms that involve the ankle and/or the foot.
