FOOT PAIN: STRANGE FEELINGS IN THE FEET

For the past couple of years I have had an increasing sensation of socks bunching up underneath the balls of my feet. I've felt this while wearing dress socks and shoes, white single-layer socks and older running shoes for walking around the house, and even double-layer running socks and new running shoes. I have checked to the best of my ability and have not found any evidence of the socks actually being bunched up. I have read that this could be something like a pinched nerve. It does not hurt, and I don't get blisters, but it is a very annoying feeling—how might I relieve it?
