on the sole of my right foot i have pain half way between my pinkie toe and heal (on the edge opposite to arch of foot).  the pain is only there when i walk on it, and completely goes when there's no pressure. the pain is not too excruciating, it's more irritating then anything and increases if i'm up longer on my feet.   a bone is slightly starting to stick out where the pain is; something i haven't noticed before.  my other foot is perfectly fine.  what is wrong? ???

The condition may be a tailors bunion. The term "tailor's bunion" initially described an acquired lesion that caused chronic pain and swelling over the lateral aspect of the fifth metatarsal head (out side of the foot). These lesions often were present on tailors, whose traditional cross-legged sitting posture on benches resulted in pressure being placed on the lateral side of the foot, leading to the development of painful bunionettes.

A tailors bunion is a painful prominence on the lateral aspect of the fifth metatarsal head. While not as common as a medial bunion (bunion on the inner aspect of foot), it is a cause of chronic pain and shoe-fitting problems in individuals whose feet are characterized by a widened forefoot or in those who have a prominence over the outer aspect of the foot.

Treatment consists of footwear advice, orthotics to correct foot movement and padding for immediate pain relief.
