Yup, that was my problem, too. I tried all sorts of conservative methods hoping that it would go away and have lived with it for a few years - all my shoes are orthoe shoes, took anti-inflammatories etc but it came to a point where walking for prolonged periods while on holiday became too painful and I couldn't even do any cardio exercise anymore (even cycling would cause excruciating pain and I haven't run in years).
So I have the shaved off accessory navicular bone as a memento of my op (it looks like a tooth actually)
