Rolled up sock syndromePosted by Rich H on 3/10/04 at 13:40 (146610)
I have a condition in which it feels as if my sock is always rolled up in my shoe, when I remove my shoe it is fine. Any ideas on what this might be?

To Rich H., I also have the same feeling in my foot, it started many years ago, and is now to the point that at times, I am barely able to walk.

This is often, but not always, caused by a Morton's neuroma which is a pinched enlarged nerve (basically a benign nerve growth), most commonly found between the bases of the 3rd and 4th toes but sometimes between the bases of the 2nd and third toes.

See my response to Rich. If it is a Morton's neuroma, it is easily curable most of the time. There are a number of treatments including injections but in a bad case I think surgery is more practical as it has a high success rate.
