Hatty, welcome!

I've not had the same problems, there may be a connection between the way you ambulate and the pressure distribution on your feet. Could it be that you now walk differently to cause as little pain/discomfort to your hips and therefore put strain on your foot as a result?

In the past I have experienced "new" problems caused by compensating for an "old" problem in walking.
