Pain in foot, while doing any exercise.!

Ok, i have had some serious pain in the ball of my right foot. I play basketball and several times in the season i would have to sit out because the pain would become so overwhelming and everytime i would run my foot would like hit a nerve and make me almost fall down. Then I just took the time between games to ice it. I also play some pretty intense soccer. We trained 3 times a week played 2 times so therefore i never got a break. My toe at this point was still giving me a shock and hitting a "nerve?" sometimes but now it felt like my toe was stuck in one postion, it was very stiff and temperamental. In the cold it was worse but still in the heat i could barley move it unless i took my boot off and cracked it. Then it would move a bit better but still be a little stiff. It would also feel broken like, almost like things are floating around in there

I have gone to the doctor and the Pod.doc.. The spesensoredt said that i might have Hallux limitus, but i read up on it and it said reduced range of motion and i do, but only sometimes and some days it depends on what i do. If i am not physically active then its better and i can bend it far but if working out or anything it gets stiff right away. Even walking.. So i would like a second opion. What should i do?? for some reason i dont trust my doctor. He suggested surgury but not untill after 22? I have already tryed a dancers pad and that didnt help. I am eager to get back to playing and if i was to have a sugury how long would i be out for? would i be on crutches? i cant efford to lose much time but cant deal with this either..! thanks!
