Morton’s Neuroma: Caused By Wearing High Heels For 8+ Hours?
I was surprised after reading a post from a forum member where she is having signs of Morton’s Neuroma by wearing high heels for only 8+ hours at a party. How could she get that in just 8+ hours? Well, below is her complete post:
Has anyone here ever been diagnosed with this? I’ve been experiencing pretty severe tingling/numbness/pins and needles in my toes and the balls of my feet for about three months, after wearing high heels for 8+ hours at a Halloween party. It’s worst when I run, when my feet are exposed to extreme heat (like in the shower), and at night when I’m lying prone (it often wakes me up or prevents me from falling asleep in the first place). I have an appointment with an orthopedist in two weeks, but my Google research so far has suggested it might be Morton’s neuroma. If you’ve had experience with this, please comment.
It seems that her symptoms match that of a morton’s neuroma. Common symptoms for morton’s neuroma are burning pain in the ball of your foot, numbness, and tingling sensation in your toes.
After 12 days, she finally updated:
Okay, I went to the orthopedist yesterday, and he said it’s actually definitely not Morton’s neuroma, but he thinks it might be something called Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Anyone know anything about that?
That clears it! It is possibly Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome not Morton’s Neuroma. But they surely have similar symptoms as experienced by erries.
