Can Morton's neuroma occur between the 1st and 2nd toes? I have numbness in 1st and 2nd toes of both feet.

Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or give medical advice on line. Morton's neuroma typically occurs between the 3rd and 4th, or the 2nd and 3rd toes. It is very rare for a neuroma to occur between the first two toes, but it's not outside the realm of possibility. Your best bet is to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can determine the cause of the numbness and recommend treatments. Numbness in the feet is not normal, and because it could indicate issues related to the nerves in your feet, it is important for you to consult a medical professional sooner rather than later. We hope you will do this and that your condition will quickly be resolved.
