General Nerve Pain

A neuroma is a benign tumor of a nerve. It can affect any nerve in the body. It is sometimes refereed to as a pinched nerve.

The most common in the foot is Morton’s neuroma. Morton’s neuroma is not actually a tumor – it is really a thickening of the tissue surrounding nerve leading to the toes. The swelling of the nerve is often the cause of symptoms.

Burning feet are a common complaint and can be caused by a number of conditions – some are local and minor, and some are more serious. Burning feet can keep people awake at night and be a source of continuous pain. It is more common in those over the age of 50 years, but a burning foot can occur in younger age groups.
