I was wondering how common Morton's neuroma is for spinal patients.
I have read that it is common in patients with fibromyalgia.
I have been getting horrible nerve type pain in my 2nd and 3rd toes of my right foot for over two years.
After my surgery it seemed to almost disappear, but then started to return again.
Lately it has been getting worse.
I had been attributing it to nerves healing after my surgery. The fact that it has been getting worse and often making walking very difficult made me start to wonder if my back problems were coming back.
At work on Thursday, everyone thought that my back was giving me a lot of trouble as I was really limping and struggling to walk. It was my toes!!
Well, I spoke to my physiotherapist at my appointment in the evening, and he examined my foot. He thinks it is Morton's neuroma. I had never heard of it! Having researched the condition, it does sounds very like it. I was wearing different shoes on Thursday, which definately made things worse.
How many of us Spine Health members have this condition?
What treatment did you have?
How long did you have the symptoms before getting treatment?
I hope the fact that I have waited so long, thinking it was related to my back, doesn't mean that I will have to have surgery!!
2010 is not going down as a good year as far as my health is concerned!! :S
