Can Tingling + Numbness = Neuroma?

Do you often feel like you have a pebble in your shoe or a fold in your sock? And when you take your shoe off to shake it out, there isn’t anything there? Eventually, you develop a tingling, burning, numbness or even shooting pain in between your third and fourth toes that won’t subside. If you are experiencing this type of discomfort or pain there is a possibility you may have Morton’s neuroma. Raymon Hanna, DPM at Alpha Omega Foot and Ankle understands the difficulty surrounding this condition and can help treat the symptoms easily.

Some suggested treatments may include:

Factors that contribute to neuroma are:

Surgical and other procedures:

Although Morton’s neuroma is usually a benign (non-cancerous) enlargement between your toes, it can still wreak havoc on your foot. The pain associated with neuroma is gradual but as it gets worse over time you will wish you had seen the doctor sooner rather than later. Nerve enlargement will likely follow and the irritation will continue to create more pain and hinder your lifestyle. 

If the pain persists more than a couple of days then seeing Raymon Hanna, DPM should be high on your “to do” list. He will certainly find a solution that fits you and your diagnoses, and some treatments can even be done right in the office for your convenience.
