Sometimes called a “pinched nerve”, or Morton’s neuroma, this condition can cause a burning sensation and tingling between the toes and ball of the foot. Side effects may include numbness and sudden foot cramps. While medication, injections, and physical therapy may offer temporary relief, there is often a more permanent solution in outpatient surgery.
As a benign growth of nerve tissue, neuromas are often painful and may be caused by:
The wearing of improper footwear
Stress (caused by working conditions)
