In brief: Neuroma

A morton's neuroma is a thickening of the nerve typically between the 3rd and 4th toes or the 2nd and 3rd toes.
Often patients will describe walking on a rock, or that their sock is bunched up in their shoes. Burning, numbness to the toes and a feeling of swelling are typical. Tighter fitting shoes or high heels will make the symptoms worse.

In brief: Pain, burning

Many people with morton's neuroma complain of pain that shoots into the toes and sometimes up the foot.
It often feels like walking with a stone in the shoe. Shoes that squeeze the forefoot will make symptoms worse.
