+Mulder's sign: If the pain and burning is primarily at the base of the 3rd and 4th toes, then neuroma is highly likely. If pain is aggravated by tight shoes or tight stockings this would also be an indication.

Cortisone/alcohol sclerosing injections are helpful, then surgery. ...Read more

Ems will have scissors that can cut through the shoe if it's hard to remove. Numbness in the toes is also not a definitive clinical indicator of a fracture. ...Read more
