A neuroma is a painful condition, commonly called a “pinched nerve” or a nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue often 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.
The primary symptom associated with a neuroma is pain on the ball of the foot that often radiates into the toes. Those suffering from the condition can find relief by stopping, removing their shoe, and massaging the painful area. At times, the patient will describe the pain as similar to having a stone in his or her shoe. Neuromas are much more common in women.
