neuromaare we talking about a mortons neuroma? i had one for probably 2 years. it burned like a cigarette was being crushed out on my toe. footwear that narrowed the forefoot couldnt be worn, so i would think rockshoes would be a killer, and narrow ski boots. i had it injected with steroids and it finally completely disappeared and has never come back.just releasing it may only create more scar and entrapment. cutting it out may just result in the end forming a bulb that is just as painful. if i had surgery, id want that bulb in a wide space, or buried in the bone.
