Mortons Neuroma?

    Could TMS be the cause for a popping sensation in my third and fourth toe along with the sensation of numbness and "crumpled sock" around that area as well? I have seen 2 podiatrists. The first diagnosed me with Mortons Neuroma and told me to wear a metatarsal pad. I did the follow up in 3 weeks and saw a different podiatrist, who told me that he thought I just had Metatarsalgia (I have no pain) and to wear orthotics/metatarsal pad. It is crazy to think that TMS could possibly be the entire cause for this sensation in my foot and that there may not be a neuroma... Any insight or experience with this?

    I had it, and it was extremely painful. Podiatrist was useless, offered me a surgery with a 60% success rate. I went to the chiropractor, 3 spinal adjustments fixed it completely. That was before I knew about TMS. So, I am on the fence about it: I do have a very tight right side of the body which may have caused a skeletal imbalance, but I am 100% certain that my muscle tightness is TMS. So, the trigger was likely TMS, but a fix by a chiropractor worked. Still, 3 years later, I was hit by another, much bigger chronic pain/muscle contraction issue which was only resolved thanks to me learning about TMS. This is a long and winding answer, I hope it helps.
