An irritation of a nerve may produce a neuroma, which is a benign enlargement of a nerve segment, commonly found between the third and fourth toes.
Trauma, arthritis, high-heeled shoes, or an abnormal bone structure are just some of the conditions that may cause a neuroma. Symptoms such as burning or tingling in the ball of the foot or in the adjacent toes and even numbness are commonly seen with this condition. Those suffering from the condition often find relief by stopping their walk, taking off their shoe, and rubbing the affected area. At times, you may feel the pain is similar to having a stone in your shoe.
