The progression of a Morton's neuroma often follows a pattern. The symptoms begin gradually. At first they occur occasionally, when wearing narrow-toed shoes or performing certain aggravating activities. The symptoms may go away temporarily by removing the shoe, massaging the foot, or by avoiding aggravating shoes or activities. However, over time the symptoms progressively worsen and may persist for several days or weeks. The symptoms become more intense as the neuroma enlarges and the temporary changes in the nerve become permanent.
Purchase new shows that have wide toe box and avoid narrow-toed shoes or shoes with high heels.
