Neuromas are Different

Neuromas have a way of being different from your average foot complication. Any injury dealing with the nerves in your feet can produce unique sensations and levels of pain. A neuroma affects a group of nerves between your toes and typically affect women due to their fashion footwear choices.

What are the symptoms?

If you have a neuroma, you may experience aching foot pain, a lack of sensation at the ball of the foot and/or inflammation in your toes. You may have a higher chance of developing neuromas if you have deformities such as high arches, sustain severe traumatic injuries to your nerves or wear shoes that are too tight in the toe box region. Diabetics are also susceptible and can further lead to complications if nerves are damaged.
