Morton's neuroma is a condition that affects the nerves in your feet. It can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in your toes. Morton's neuroma is also called a nerve tumor or an intermetatarsal neuroma. Morton's neuroma occurs when the tissue around your nerve is damaged. This damage can be caused by injury, inflammation, or pressure on the nerve. The damaged tissue forms a growth, or tumor, that puts pressure on the nerve. This pressure can cause the nerve to swell and become irritated. Morton's neuroma is most common in women and people over the age of 40. It is also more common in people who have certain conditions, such as bunions, hammertoes, or high heels. Symptoms of Morton's neuroma include: • Pain in your foot that is worse when you walk, run, or stand on your toes • Burning, tingling, or numbness in your toes • A feeling that something is "stuck" in your shoe • Pain that gets worse when you wear tight shoes If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor. He or she will ask about your symptoms and medical history. He or she will also do a physical exam. Your doctor may order tests, such as an MRI or a CT scan, to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment for Morton's neuroma may include: • Wearing shoes that have a wide toe box and low heels • Using pads or supports in your shoes • Taking over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or naproxen • Getting injections of corticosteroids or other medications • Undergoing surgery to remove the neuroma Morton's neuroma can usually be treated without surgery. But, in some cases, surgery may be needed to relieve the pain.

Exosome therapy injected into the neuromas has been to improve pain
