Morton's neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. Your toes also may sting, burn or feel numb. High-heeled shoes have been linked to the development of Morton's neuroma. Many people experience relief by switching to lower heeled shoes with wider toe boxes. Sometimes corticosteroid injections or surgery may be necessary.

Dear lybrate user it appears you have strained your back during gym exercise. Pain could be due to herniated disc. Mri can cost between 4000-6000. Before resuming exercise you need a check up.

I am 58 years old male and am suffering from sciatica problem from last june-2014, l4, l5 compression, for lower back ache severely, so many doctors suggested you are ready to go on surgery, I am avoid surgery. I have used kerala ayurveda medicine, and also homeopathic medicine. Kindly clarify my problem.

Hi . In sciatica there is the prolapsed disc which is pressing on the nerve root. The surgery is minimal and will relieve the compression. Surgery is recommended for you. There are a few doctors who claim manipulative reduction of disc prolapses. If you are interested I can share that information with you in case you would like to try a non surgical reduction.
