Get thee to a chiropodist.

From what he/she tells you, get to a doctor for a referral.

In the meantime, try something from here.

Try ball of foot cushioning under foot care.

My mum in law has what she terms 'a tadpole' basically a little t-bar shaped piece of cushioning that fits between two toes. She said it's the only thing that's helped. That and I would imagine rest and ice... I second the chiropodist!
