Pain in the forefoot portion of your foot is often a sign of metatarsalgia. Metatarsalgia is often a phrase for all conditions of forefoot pain, which can be the result of several issues. Sufferers often state that the pain can be worse when barefoot. If you wear high heels the pain can also be worse.
Morton’s neuroma is a more specific condition that involves a benign neuroma often between the second and third metatarsal heads. It can be caused by the compression of the nerve between the metatarsal heads. Some people describe it as feeling like they have a pebble stuck in their shoe.
