In brief: Hope for Improvement

Mortan's neuroma common in woman is a thickned digital nerve at the ball of foot , base of 3 and 4 toes causes pain, numbness , pins and needles , burning cramping, unable to wear the shoes etc.
Steroid injection reduces the swelling in that closed space, may reduce the size of neuroma giving relief , alcohol injection will destroy the nerve .Surgical is excision other option.
