    I am having right medial great toe neuralgia/likely some variant of Joplin neuralgia for 13 years, with a digital branch of the superficial peroneal nerve as the source of the pain. Sensitive to touch the toe pain area and severe needle pain occurs randomly without any touch. I did MRI, CT and X-ray scans but no sign of damage. I had below procedures and no effect on pain.
    1. RFA twice
    2. PRP injections
    3. Cortisone and Kenalog injections
    4. Laser therapy
    Took medications like Cymbalta and Gabapentin but doesn't help the pain. I have to use wide footwear to avoid touching the toe pain area and used orthodontics insole but no help.
    Please help.
