Should I have an MRI?

I have had lateral foot pain right at the 5th Metatarsal base for several years. Normally it would stay a deep soreness for a couple of weeks then would stop bothering me for a few months and flare up again. I work 60hrs a week standing and fast pace walking on concrete, other than that I come home clean house and take care of my family. About the middle of February it started hurting again. This time the pain more severe. Deep soreness, but also feels as if a knife has been jabbed into the side of my foot. I have been to a podiatrist, he diagnosed me with personal tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. I have been out of work for 4 weeks on rest and I am wearing a Rebound air cast. My pain is NO better. I now have additional pain that runs toward and behind my ankle and sometimes runs horizontally from the
5th Metatarsal base. I do have the clicking noise from (I assume) my ankle with no pain. I have tried to educated my self and my curiosity on dealing with this type of injury. I have read several times that an MRI may be needed and Possible surgery. I called my Dr. Office a few days ago to ask about this and When the nurse called back she said the Dr wants to try me in a Custom Orthotic first and gave me an option for a cortisone injection.. Im not a Dr, but I want to fix my problem not treat my symptom. Is that the correct course of action???? Thanks

I can't see an MRI being helpful in this sort fo case.
The only thing I can suggest is that a diagnosis of cubiod syndrome be considered.
