How Do I Know If I Have Morton’s Neuroma?
Morton’s neuroma is a stiffening of the tissues of the foot that pinch and pressure the nerves. Neuroma means benign tumor, but Morton’s neuroma always indicates a thickening that affects the metatarsalgia. There are no noticeable physical changes due to this condition.
Things To Look For
- Pain commonly found between the fourth and third toes of the feet.
- Pain similar to having a pebble or marble in your shoes as you walk.
- Burning pain, numbness, stinging sensations that radiate through the toes
- Pain triggered by starting a sprint
Examine your feet by placing pressure between the toe bones. Search for calluses, fractures, masses, or clicks between the bones. An X-Ray or motion tests can be conducted to definitively locate the condition.
