I think I am in the early stages of the same thing--sharp, almost electric, numbing, or hot pain between 3rd and 4th toes of left foot, sometimes extending up my left leg--usually not a problem until around six miles of running or vigorous walking. It was aggravated by a new pair of shoes that was confining. It has not been diagnosed, but I did some online "research." Allowing plenty of toebox room helps me.<br>

Turns out that Jim's broken toe isn't broken - it's Morton's neuroma. Anybody
have any ideas about treatment, prognosis, etc? Any experience?
Suspicion is that this'll put a major crimp in our long-distance hiking plans
for the summer. </PRE></TT></BLOCKQUOTE>
