A neuroma, which is a benign tumor or buildup of nerve tissue, can occur anywhere in the body. Morton’s Neuroma, caused by a nerve being pinched at the base of the toes, is quite common, usually causing burning and sore feet.
Treatment often involves simply taking off the shoes occasionally and massaging the painful area. If the condition is particularly bothersome, it may be necessary to inject the area or surgically remove the tissue causing the problem.
