X-rays showed no fractures in my ailing toe, so my doctor referred me to a podiatrist.
I saw the podiatrist this morning and his diagnosis was that I had a neuroma, a swollen nerve between my third and fourth toes. He said we caught it early enough so that one or two shots of cortisone should fix the problem.
He gave me a shot and I go back in two weeks to see if I need another.
My toe already feels better and I am looking forward to wearing high heels real soon now.
