Pain And Numbness In Toe And Foot Could I Have Neuroma
+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. If the pain is relieved when you remove shoes and it feels better by rubbing the area, a neuroma is highly likely. Try wider shoes. Cortisone/alcohol sclerosing injections are helpful, then surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Numb: As the other dr's mentioned radiculopathy etc etc are all possibilities. One other is compression neuropathy . It is possible because you state your foot goes numb with athletic shoes, that something in the shoe fit or position of the shoe is compressing a blood vessel(s) serving the nerve(s) to the foot. A thorough evaluation by your podiatrist is in order ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe something else: Neuromas are impingements of the interdigital nerves, and usually cause pain and symptoms and pain in the balls of the feet and toes usually. If a larger area of the foot is involved, it could be tarsal tunnel- a nerve impingment at the ankle. See a podiatrist, as he/she can diagnose this, and help to rule out possible medical reasons for it (like in neuropathy). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Numbness verses Pain: Morton's neuroma can cause a lot of different symptoms including numbness but as long as that does not affect the quality of your life, there may be no need to address this. Most patients do something about "pain, " but you can try a cortisone injection and this may help the numbness but not necessarily. Beyond this, there is nothing much that will help like p. T., shoes, etc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not necessarily: Numbness comes from compression of sensory nerves which supply the toes between metatarsal bones. Compression results in inflammation or swelling. When the nerve is compressed, inflamed, or swollen, sensation can be altered. Intermittent symptoms mean nerve dysfunction is generally not severe enough to cause permanent damage-but continuing damage can become permanent. Take action before then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Neuroma? Could be..: Neuromas are a common foot problem. This is due to damage to the nerve usually between the third and fourth toes. Symptoms can include pain and burning at times and numbness at times. Staying in a thicker soled, stiff shoe with plenty of toe room and good support can be helpful. Conservative care is most successful if treatment is early. If delayed, surgical excision may be needed. Dr. L. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What is neuroma? I see this word a lot when asking about my recent issue with my right big toe and the swelling of the balls of my right foot. I can't walk or sleep. Please advise.
Had a cortisone injection in my foot for morton's neuroma, and my middle toes are now very swollen in between. Is this normal or a shot reaction?
Could be infection: Some swelling after a cortisone injection is normal . If there is redness, heat, tenderness and severe pain, it could indicate there is an infection. If it persists beyond 12-24 hours even after applying ice and elevating the leg, get it looked at by your doctor, or go the the ER. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
