Afternoon all,

I'm currently awaiting an appointment with the NHS for a foot and ankle specialist for orthopaedics. I had an Ultrasound due to recurring foot issues that never really seem localised to a specific area and it APPEARS I have a neuroma on the post-tib nerve in the arch of the foot.

Now I was looking at what treatment option I have for this as I prefer to avoid surgery and the pain has been pretty minimal in the last month tbh but I want to keep the appointment just as the issue has been intermittent and Im convinced it is just dormant rather than somehow fixed itself!

I noticed one of the treatment options for neuroma's is steroid or alcohol injection and wondering if anyone has any experience of anything like this? Googling foot neuromas seems to bring up just mortons neuroma (between the toes) where as mine is on the post tib nerve on the inside of the arch.

I know when I've read about injections for plantar fascia people have said it is essentially a miracle cure for a few months and then sometimes worse as the needle only really damages the plantar fascia, but what about things like neuroma's? are there the same risks/concerns or have people found good results from neuroma injections if anyone has had any?

Cheers,

Tom

Neuroma is a swelling or growth of nerve tissue. Personally, I'd ask the doc...they should have more appropriate answers to your questions based on your condition rather than the happy talkers....

I like the idea of alcohol ingestion though...I may give it a try later...
