Tingling, burning, numbness and electric-like shocks are all possible symptoms of nerve damage. Neuromas are one of the most frequent nerve conditions seen by podiatrists, characterized by these manifestations in the forefoot. The pain is actually the result of the thickening of a nerve (inflammation), in conjunction with other factors. Symptoms are often aggravated when walking, during physical activity or when wearing shoes that are too narrow or tight (and even high heels). The most common neuroma is a Morton’s neuroma, located between the 3rd and 4th toes.
