    ive had a Morton's neuroma for 3 years (after 1st pregnancy). it went undiagnosed fire a long while and then was somewhat manageable for me with being in birkenstocks all the time. i had 1 cortisone infection 2yr ago and had an allergic reaction. now after my 2nd baby (5 months ago) i am in so much pain i can't walk on that foot (no shoes even open toe work). i had another injection done 3wk ago and although no allergic reaction, i still cannot walk on it without EXTREME pain. i can't function with 2 young kids at home. i am in pain even when in bed. im waiting on mri/xray results but i can't help but feel upset. podiatrist suggested surgery but i see such bad results others have had. anyone eve have such bad pain they can't walk on foot with a cortisone injection?

    It is very unusual for a morton's neuroma to be that painful, so you need to see what the imaging shows.
    Not sure where you are getting your information from on the bad results of surgery; the surgery is a good option.

    Hello Amysee
    Just saw your message this morning and you sound very much like my son, he also had been suffering with Morton’s Neuroma for 3years - misdiagnosed and Clovid restrictions did’t help. After reviewing all different treatment options he decided to go for Cryosurgery a few weeks ago and presently very happy (feels like winning lottery, pain free) Draw back not offered on Nhs and had to be done privately.
    It some months ago since you wrote for advice, I hope by now your pain is under control it can be so debilitating

    I have mortons neuroma for about 10 years now and it is very very painful...I have read many results from different people that had surgery and its very risky.
    I have had cortosine shots but no good results.
    Someone on here posted about toe separators so thats me current treatment...undo what I initially done.
    Good luck...there are nights when my feet cannot touch the blankets too.
