Morton's neuroma: A Morton's neuroma is commonly found in between the third and fourth toes. If it becomes enlarged it can cause cramping, pain and/ or numbness. See your local foot care specialist for further evaluation and treatment. Also check to see that your shies are not too tight.

Probably neuroma: You probably have a Morton's neuroma which can be treated by a visit to your foot and ankle specialist. Podiatrists are well trained to treat such a condition it is most likely easily to resolve with such treatment as a cortisone injection, orthotics , and shoe modification. You could try wearing wide, low heeled shoes and taking Otc anti inflammatory medication like ibuprofen .

Possible Neuroma: There are many things that can cause numbness in toes. A common problem is known as a Morton's Neuroma. A normal podiatric exam can help diagnose your problem. In some cases a sonogram or MRI can make a definitive diagnosis. It is always better to treat early, so don't hesitate to see a doctor.

Nerve inflamation: Sounds like it could be a condition called a neuroma. This is a benign swollen nerve between your toe joints. Tight or ill fitting shoes can cause your toes to crunch together which can aggravate the nerve that travels between your toes. Try soaking your feet in warm water/epsom salts. Afterwards roll your foot on a ball or bottle to stretch out the bottom of your foot and toes.

Circulation issue: What activities are you involved in regularly? Do you have discoloration of toes? You may be having an issue with circulation. Also, have you been doing a bit of drinking recently? Alcohol can cause some temporary neuropathy.
