alcohol injections for Morton neuromaPosted by Suzanne Kelly on 4/18/04 at 17:04 (149094)
I have received 4 alcohol injections 2 weeks apart
in both my feet for MN. I was doing much better after 3rd.injec. only to have symptoms beg to return after the fourth. Should I be concerned?

I hope you get some responses. I have not seen many posts here about the injections. I would be interested in all details, e.g. do all Pods offer this? Pain? Cost? Side effects? Thanks & good luck.

Do you know anything about alcohol injection therapy for MN?
Is it normal to have a recurrance of symptoms that had previously gone away during treatment?

Opinions vary on this. Some will do up to eight injections. My philosophy is to try three -- continue if a significant amount of releif occurs but switch treatment course if it does not. Quite frankly, multiple shots is more painful than surgical removal of a neuroma in my experience.
