Tingling or Radiating Pain to Your Toes While Walking?
You may be suffering from an inflamed nerve called a neuroma.
A neuroma is a painful condition that can be referred to as a “pinched nerve” or a nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue frequently found between the third and fourth toes that brings on pain, a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot.
Keep in mind it can occur to any of your toes, the 3rd and 4th toes are just the most common.
Many patients complain that the neuroma bothers them when they are walking and they find relief by stopping, taking off their shoe and rubbing or massaging the affected area.
It’s no surprise that these inflamed nerves affect women more that wear high heels because they put a lot of pressure on the ball of the foot.
