How can a neuroma affect my feet and toes?

Burning and tingling radiating into the toes is usually a result of a neuroma. A neuroma is caused by pressure on the nerve between your toes. This may occur between your first and second toes or even your third and fourth. Another symptom often associated with a neuroma is feeling as though you have a pebble in your shoe. The tissues around the nerve may have thickened or the nerve is irritated. If the symptoms persist, you may want to see a doctor to explore treatment options.
