Tarsal Tunnel getting worse/Neuroma?

Posted by Ann L on 9/12/02 at 22:47 (095211)

I was diagnosed w/tarsal tunnel and had several steroid injections and I was fitted w/orthotics. I was stable for some time and now it is getting progressively worse. The affected nerve has become more tender. Before I knew the approximate area of teh nerve;now it is easily isolated and has hard lumps beginning to form across the heel and into the arch. Is it possible to have developed a neuroma in this area? Are there any alternative therapies to surgery. Help! Any suggestions? I'm getting desperate!
