Morton’s neuroma is caused due to the swelling of the inter metatarsal plantar nerve, usually involving the third and fourth inter metatarsal spaces. It is not a true tumor formation rather a fibrous tissue formation around nerve tissue. Pain on carrying weight, shooting pain while causing pressure are symptoms of this disease.
MRI scan can be helpful in determining this disease though it can be ineffective at times. Visiting your podiatrist at regular intervals can help to track of the disease. Long term solution to this problem can be effected only with the help of surgery.
