The Most common affected area for neuromas is between your third and fourth toes. This condition is specifically referred to as a Morton’s Neuroma. Many patients report their pain as feeling as though they have a small rock in their shoe or a fold in their sock. This thickening of tissue around the nerve of the foot can lead to pain in your toes. Many patients may feel sharp, burning or tingling pains in the ball of the foot or numbness to the toes. Shoe gear can be a cause of Morton’s neuromas if you often wear high heels. Changing shoe gear to decrease pressure surrounding the nerve may alleviate pain. If conservative measures are unsuccessful, a corticosteroid injection or surgery may be necessary.
