Anyone have it or had it?
Any success with dealing with it, getting rid of it?
Tips for being able to run with it? Shoes etc?

Thanks

As I understand it - unless its surgically removed (last resort!) its not cureable.

However, I have it and I manage it pain free now - thankfully. I visited my tried and trusted podiatrist who cured my plantar fascitis and he prescribed me inexpensive orthotics which spread my feet/toes and eases the neuroma.

I adventure race so can spend a lot of time on my feet and I have no reocurrence of the pain since using the orthotics.

Untreated it will get worse - so professional advice to ease the discomfort and thereby ease the neuroma is essential going forward.

Thanks for the inf- which kind of orthotics? Were they custom made or bought over the counter?

They were not over the counter type..........podiatrist ordered them in cut them to size to fit my shoe - they are if you like one step up from over the counter they have specified areas on the orthotic where it spreads my feet - they cost me all in with his consult and time to fit (5 mins!) etc. 160.00.

Boots did a version which had I not had a company health scheme that paid the 160.00 - I probably would have brought them to try first they were specifically aimed at neuroma and were about 29.99 -if you were worried about cost.

Now having been pain free for months 160.00 was the most worthwhile investment and that ultimately is the key - what is worth the cost your health to resume your activity?

Good luck in finding what works for you.
