Metatarsalgia recovery?

I was wondering if anyone had dealt with and/or had any success healing/curing or otherwise recovering from metatarsalgia?

I've seen an orthopaedic Dr. because initially I was worried I had a stress fracture in my foot. Fortunately I do not and there is no indication of any damage to tissue or any inflammation that can be observed. I just have localised pain in the ball of my left foot just at the base of the big toe joint and the metatarsal. The Dr. said it was metatarsalagia.

So I am following the RICE protocol and have gotten gel pads for my shoes and this has all helped. However, it keeps resurfacing and I am wondering if there is any chance I will be shot of this or will it just be something I'll have to live with?
