If you feel like you’re walking on a stone, but nothing is in your shoe, you may have developed a Morton’s neuroma. This is an uncomfortable swelling and thickening of the nervous tissue between two metatarsal heads in the ball of the foot. Typically, this appears between the third and fourth digits. The more pressure you place on the ball of your foot, the more uncomfortable the neuroma will feel. Often you develop problems like tingling, numbness, and burning pain that radiates into your toes, in addition to the feeling of standing on a rock.
If you’re experiencing nerve pain in your lower limbs, you shouldn’t ignore it. Nerve damage—and the pain that goes with it—can become permanent if not treated promptly.
