For about 3 days i have felt my leg kinda soered and as if i have walked all day. Very tired. and my knee to. What do i have?


You suspected yourself to have morton's neuroma right ? It could be true since it has similiar symptoms like yours. To diagnose it for sure, you has to do MRI.
Symptoms include: pain on weight bearing, frequently after only a short time; the pain is felt as a shooting pain affecting the contiguous halves of two toes. Burning, numbness and parasthesia may also be experienced. Classically the 3rd digital space between the 3rd and 4th toes is affected, but the condition can occasionally occur in the 2nd and 3rd interdigital space. The pain is caused by pressure on the enlarged section of nerve where it passes between the metatarsal heads, and is squeezed between them. The first toe is usually not involved. Neuroma in the 4th/5th interdigital space is described, but is extremely rare

There are other causes of pain in the forefoot. Too often all forefoot pain is categorized as neuroma. Other conditions to consider are capsulitis, which is an inflammation of ligaments that surrounds two bones, at the level of the joint. In this case it would the ligaments that attach the toe bone to the metatarsal bone. Inflammation from this condition will put pressure on an otherwise healthy nerve and give neuroma type symptoms. Additionally, an intermetatarsal bursitis between the third and fourth metatarsal bones will also give neuroma type symptoms because it too puts pressure on the nerve.

But why don't you start to check your blood glucose first. Diabetic neuropathy has your symptoms too.

Good luck
