Often called Morton’s or inter-metatarsal neuroma, with pain ranging from a mild throbbing ache, to an intense constant burning with radiating numbness to the associated digits, often aggravated by tight footwear.

Why do trapped nerves cause pain?

Pain is due to a thickening of the nerve sheath between the affected toes, commonly between the 2nd/3rd or 3rd/4th toes, treatment with a course of cortisone injections may help around 40% of patients,otherwise excision of the neuroma may be indicated.
