yes I have pain on my left foot I was diagnosed by a foot specialist with fibroma/ mortons neuroma on the bottom of both of my feet left foot worst than right foot. The pain was so bad that he injected a steriod around the growth last week and iced it for several days, he also is going to make me a pair of orthotics next week however I continue to have some pain especially on the side of my left foot in the middle. the specialist also found a lump on my right hand small which does not hurt. since the injection has only helped a little what else can I do? any good topical creams? Thank you ,

Thanks for writing to us,

I have studied your case with diligence.

You may need neurotropic medication with analgesic .
I f not relieved you may need another local injection shot may help.

If all modalities fail surgical exicision is good for permanent cure.
