Neuromas - commonly called Morton's neuroma, this begins when an outer covering of a nerve in your foot thickens. This thickening is usually caused by irritation that results when two bones repeatedly rub together (often due to ill-fitting shoes or abnormal bone movement).
The area between the third and fourth toes is the most commonly affected.
Symptoms may start gradually causing burning, tingling, cramping, or numbness. Symptoms often occur after you've been walking or standing for a period of time. You may feel like you need to remove your shoe and rub your foot.
Treatment for neuromas may include shoe gear changes, foot padding, arch supports, medication, injection, physical therapy, or surgery.
