I'm not a doctor, but I had this exact thing happen to me about 18 months ago. What cured it for me was cleat wedges. The ones I got were Bike Fit Systems Cleat Wedges, but I'm sure any would work. For me I put the wedge so that it built up a little more space on the inside of my foot. It was counter-intuitive for me, but this allows more force to be produced from the ball of the foot than the outside. Less force driving the outside of my foot into the outside of my shoe was a good thing. I was to the point I was in so much pain, I couldn't ride and had visited a podiatrist to discuss surgery options. Within weeks of putting the wedges in, my pain alleviated and I haven't had a problem since. Likely the best $25 I've ever spent, because the surgery option was horrific.
