What is it?
Morton’s Neuroma is a painful condition affecting the ball of the foot, where the tissue surrounding one of the nerves that leads to your toes thickens, causing a sharp burning pain in the ball of your foot and impacting your toes by making them sting, burn or feel numb.
The condition commonly develops between the third and fourth toes and can feel like you are standing on a marble in your shoe, a tingling or numbness in your toes or a burning pain in the ball of your foot, which might radiate into your toes.
What causes it?
