Can’t take the pain!

I am 29, a nurse, and also own a candle business.
I stay on my feet a lot, and a couple of months ago, I started noticing pain near my arch area, but on the heel. It is on both feet, same spot, and it is a burning pain at times. Also, my on the top of my left foot, I have numbness on the area between where my 2nd and big toe are, which is scary.
I am almost in constant pain and inserts, topical medication, and stretches don’t bring relief. When I have been sitting for a while and start to walk, my feet feel very stiff also. I am going to see a podiatrist but wonder if you have any idea what this could be?

    Without examining you I can’t say for certain. Some things that are possible on the top of your foot would be an entrapment of the deep peroneal nerve. On the bottom, possibilities are heel spur/plantar fasciitis, tarsal tunnel, heel neuroma, heel bursitis. I think it is a good idea to have this seen about.
