If you are a runner you are probably used to every day aches and pains, but there can be a difference between something that is annoying and something that is an actual problem.
Dr. Larry Benson is treating "morton's neuroma".
Morton's neuroma is a fibrosis of the common digital nerve in the foot. It usually occurs between the second and third toe.
It could mean you need to take a break from running. Inserts to the shoes can help or steroid injections can decrease inflammation.
Chronic and severe neuromas could require surgery.
