Morton's ? - Yep, I'm suspecting the reborn running effort in combination with my general problem with some of my shoes which are tight across the ball of foot.
foot exercises and further experimentation are the next . . . . step
Hi Graham, how is it going with your feet pain condition?
Have you had a proper examination, diagnosis, remedy?
I ask because recently i am experiencing a lot of pain [ in left ball of foot only ] especially while walking,
My left 4th toe looks swollen, but doesn't hurt if i give it a squeeze, the pain is when i track back to the metatarsal area under the ball of foot, and here the pain can be intense, especially while walking barefoot indoors, feels like i'm walking with a pebble under my foot.
My right foot is fine, and reading about incorrect sized footwear being a likely cause doesn't seem to ring true in my case.
All my footwear is sensible and comfy, and i am presently blessed with many pairs of cycling shoes that fit my feet really well.
However, recently with the coming of this problem i notice that my left foot tends to swell after an hour of cycling and then it doesn't like being in the 'correctly sized' shoe.
I don't do any running [ not a good idea with my knees! ] and otherwise my feet are in fab form and condition, well the right one is anyway.
I guess there must be other causes to this dilemma.
Today a quick telephone consolation with my local medical practice has agreed my issue does sound like Morton's Neuroma ( in left foot only ) and a referral to a specialist NHS podiatrist will be made very soon. They will post me a letter with referral date.
The odd thing is, while on my 22 mile cycle rides i feel fine and forget all about my left foot disorder, my Giro shoes have a fairly solid sole and superb fit, it's only when i get home i realise my left shoe has a strange and sorry looking swollen foot inside it, and then i walk about it's with a painful limp!
