@fourof5zs I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I could cry. I do not like to hear she is suffering so. I USED the TOPTICIN cream last night and this morning. To me it has helped immensely. Truly took the pail away. I just wok from a 2 hour, yes 2 hour pain free nap. Now I am not going to say "miracle" but it has helped so much. Of course I take a percocet but that is what I have been taking without this relief. It is sure worth a try. I ordered my from Amazon. I did not know they sold it in stores. My sister buys hers from their site and says she can good deals. I do feel relief. I think part is I am messaging it into my keg and foot and under my toes and foot and the message helps too. Prayers for you and your Mom.
@fourof5zs Thank you for the info. I am not planning on repeated cortisone shots. I know how painful they were in my knew and the foot and hand are bad. I may allow the predisone as I hear it is not bad and does help. He gave me the med pack which is predisone steroid and that helped sooo much but can't do that often. I also have neuropathy and am referred to physical therapy. I haven't started because I wanted to hear what the podiatrist had to say on Wednesday. I love water therapy. I am so tired of pain, swelling, cramps, crying, depression. Al on here know all about it. My sister suggested a cream for neuropathy pain and swelling and I ordered off of Amazon. It is Topricin. She says it works. It just arrived and I am going to try it. Has anyone used this cream? I will let you know how it works for me.

@fourof5zs Thank you How long did it take before it was decided to do surgery? How many shots did you have? Were they cortizone and did they hurt like really bad? I have neuropathy on top of this so I don't know if numbness is neuropathy or neuroma. All I know is pain.and swelling. Even at night when in bed. I am going back on gabapentin and pray that helps at least with the neuropathy. I wi be going for acupuncture soon.

@jenniferhunter Thank you so much. I will go to that link very shortly but wanted to thank you right now.
@notborntoburn So you didn't have Morton neuroma? I am a bit confused. As far as doctors. After 8 months of pain and vague to no answers about the extreme pain in my foot, no I don't trust doctors. Even the podiatrist who finally makes sense with Mortons neuroma leaves me anxious. I know I have neuropathy. How, why and what kind I don't know and really no one doctor cares. I did have the nerve conduction test and I saw the results. I do feel comfortable with the rheumatologist, but what the results are remains to be seen. My issue has been the severe pain in my foot that have made me give up pleasure that I had left in my live. I had my now 3 year old great grand daughter and my grand daughter every weekend. I can no longer keep the baby for a long period of time because the pain and swelling stops me from walking. Both Momma and baby have some issues so I do take over most of the care. I am thankful that their wonderful caretaker whom I consider family bring them every Sunday and they all spend the day. I am lead to believe Morton neuroma can be reduced to no pain but yes I am very fearful. Do they know what your feet problems are and what are they doing for it. Is it part of neuropathy? My prayers for you to get relief.
@notborntoburn Thank you for sharing with me. What prompted surgery for the Morton neuroma? What had you tried before surgery was done? This is new to me. All this time this is what I had which was causing the awful pain. I don't understand why no one picked up on it even after an MRI was done. However every symptom is here. My first visit with podiatrist was 1 1/2 weeks ago. He did want to do a shot but I just couldn't subject myself to that pain. He put me on the 5 day med pack and within 2 days the swelling was done and much of the pain. I was also recommended for better shoes that I did not have to squeeze my feet into which will also help with neuropathy. I have been done with the med pack for 4 days and have some swelling a pain. Not as intense and I am treating it with ice. I did not expect for it to disappear after inflamming this foot for over 8 months. I was doing everything I should not have been doing with this issue. It may take surgery sooner than it would have if it would have been treated earlier. How long were you treated before surgery was done and why would the doctor say you didn't follow directions and just leave you. He should still work with you. Sounds like a cop out to me. Can you give me some info from beginning of your journey with these neuromas to now? Thank you.
