Back problems yes.and is red,not overweight.

Thanks for this question
Often times, back trouble can result in foot pain. The nerves that exit the spine travel down to the foot. If they are pinched in the low back they can cause foot pain.
Also, gout can do this. Even regular weight people can get gout.
I recommend you see your GP and get tested for a pinched nerve in your back and gout.
