How do I know if I have a neuroma?

One of the main symptoms of neuromas—as with any injury—is pain. When you have Morton’s neuroma, you will feel a sharp pain under the ball of your foot. It usually occurs between the third and fourth toes. Also called a pinched nerve or a nerve tumor, this benign swelling of the tissue results from the area being pinched between the bones. Other symptoms include a thick feeling between the toes or the sensation of having a bunched up sock under the ball of your foot. You may also have numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation in your toes.
