Neuroma: A neuroma is a growth of nerve tissue found between the toes. It brings on pain, a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness. If left untreated, neuromas tend to get worse. They can be treated with padding, taping, orthotics, pain medications, or surgery. Using high heels, shoes with small toe box, or with poor padding can make symptoms worse and should be avoided.
