A Morton's neuroma is one of the common sources of pain in the ball of the forefoot, known as Metatarsalgia. A neuroma occurs when the normal healthy nerves between the metatarsal heads form excess scar tissue around the nerve. This scar tissue causes pinching and squeezing between the metatarsal heads, resulting in pain.
The most common sites are centrally in the forefoot, between toes 2 and 3 or between toes 3 and 4.
Typically, there is no outward sign of this condition. People often complain of a sensation as if they are walking with a pebble or balled-up sock under their foot. They may also have a burning pain that radiates into their toes, and some experience a tingling or numbness in the toes.
