Yes: Neuromas are treated with injections, pads, shoe changes, physical therapy, custom orthotics, topical creams and if all else fails, surgery.

Yes: Morton's neuroma can be quite painful from cramps, burning, numbness to sharp pain. There are lots of treatment options available both conservative to surgical. Discuss all options with your doctor but suggest conservative treatment first. Hope that helps!

Sometimes it is!: If just 2 or 3 toes are "numb" this could be from a specific type of nerve irritation called a neuroma. If all the toes are numb, something else may be going on. See a podiatrist for a physical exam and diagnosis. Then specific treatment is much easier to recommend. If you want to try something on your own, try a metatarsal raise pad. http://www.hapad.com/search-by-product/metatarsal-arch-pads.h.
