And, indeed, it does seem to correct itself.
But would it not be nice to know just why it began in the first place -- as
well as why it vanishes so mysteriously ?

However I don't think the original question was about chronic condiditions,
but about the day-to-day discomfort of feet bound up in over-tight ghillies
(perhaps with plastic lurking inside) made worse by synthetic hose maybe
(or in any other item of the poorly designed footwear that fashion puts in
the shops).

Treat you feeet with the greatest possible respect; let their muscles and
many little bones move as nature intended. Feet may not have been designed
for dancing perhaps, but they evolved to allow us to get about quickly,
efficiently and to stand up to fairly continual use, walking, running,
jumping as well as simply supporting our weight for many hours a day.
Iscountry dancing so very different? Let them do their job with the least
possible restraint compatible with the quality and temperature of the floor.
