Morton's Neuroma
 

A neuroma is a thickening of the nerve that can occur in various parts of the foot resulting in nerve damage. Morton’s neuroma is the most common neuroma in the foot occurring at the base of the third and fourth toes.

With Morton’s neuroma, you will experience the following symptoms on or near the toes:

  • Tingling or numbness
  • Burning
  • Electric shock in area of the toes
  • Pain
  • A feeling that something is inside the ball of the foot


The symptoms begin gradually and often occurs when wearing narrow-toed shoes or performing certain aggravating activities. The symptoms may diminish temporarily by massaging the foot or by avoiding activities that brought on the pain.

However, over time, the symptoms progressively worsen and may persist for several days or weeks at a time. These symptoms become more intense as the neuroma grows in size and the nerve damage becomes more permanent.

One clearly distinctive risk factor is wearing shoes that have a tapered toe box, or high-heeled shoes that cause the toes to be forced into the toe box. People with certain foot deformities such as bunions, hammertoes or flatfeet, are also at high risk for developing a neuroma; as are those who participate in activities that require a repetitive irritation to the ball of the foot.

It’s best to consult a podiatrist in the early stages of development, as early diagnosis greatly lessens the need for invasive treatments and potential surgery.
