Toe pain at night

My toes throb all night long, or whenever I am laying down. As soon as I stand up, they stop, but they are severe enough to wake me in the night. I have tried new shoes, no shoes, exercises, no exercises, foot massage, heat, cold, tylenol, aspirin, advil, aleve, and nothing works. I had some relief from a muscle relaxer that was meant for my back, but I don't want to be on pills forever. Any ideas what could be causing this? Could this be a sign of diabetes

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
