Overview

Symptoms of morton's neuroma begin gradually and initially occur only occasionally while wearing the narrow-toed shoes and performing certain aggravating activities. Symptoms may go away temporarily by removing the shoe, massaging the foot and avoiding the aggravating shoes/activities. Symptoms become even more intense & start to worsen progressively with time and may persist for several days or weeks. Ultimately, the temporary changes in the nerve become permanent if left untreated for prolonged periods of time. Common complications of morton's neuroma include difficult walking, trouble performing activities that put pressure on the foot (pressing the gas pedal of an automobile), feet hurt with wearing certain types of shoes especially high-heels, permanent non-painful numbness & small risk of infection around toes after surgery. Non-surgical treatment is successful in 80% of the cases but does not always improve symptoms and surgery to remove the thickened tissue is successful in about 85% of cases.
