If you were standing in your feet for long periods recently (the most possible ) then you need to see an orthopedic doctor and getting a foot xray.
It may be stress fracture in your metatarsals.
A mild case but needs treatment.
Other possibilities as increased uruc acid levels and plantar fascitis
Please let me know other history if this is not your case.

hi,
i do not think this is anything related to bones.
it may be a soft tissue swelling.
Take anti-inflammatory tablets,keep leg elevated in night.
applying compression bandage and ice packs can help.
thanks

hello there
this may be morton’s metatarsalgia or hyperuricemia.
get xray and uric acid levels in blood checked.
use soft footwear.

tablets like colchicine,allopurinol can be used if uric acid levels are higher
