What is Morton Neuroma?

Have you ever found that perfect pair of shoes, only to discover when you try them on that your foot is a bit too wide for them? Vanity sometimes prompts us to go ahead and buy the shoes anyway, and the wearing of them can result in Morton neuroma. What happens is the the nerve that runs between your toes can swell from being squeezed together to tightly, causing either a harsh sharp pain or that irritaing burning pain in the ball of your foot that just gets worse the longer you walk on it. Treatment includes ice packs, resting the foot, taking an ibuprofin medicine and throwing those darned shoes away!
