“Why do I feel like I’m walking on a marble or my sock is bunched up?”

We get this question quite frequently.

It’s a weird feeling people get on the ball of the foot, usually under the middle toes.

If you Google what might be causing this feeling, the most common diagnosis to appear is NEUROMA.

A neuroma in Wappingers Fall, NY, is a benign nerve tumor that most commonly occurs between the 3rd and 4th toes.

It isn’t the most common reason for the “marble” or “bunched-up” feeling.

The most common reason is inflammation and thickness of the tissue under the 2nd joint.

There are many causes of this condition, which occurs more in females.

The best home remedies are wearing shoes with adequate cushion, not going barefoot, avoiding running or jumping, and using a soft insert.

If sharp pain occurs, a tear of a ligament or tendon is possible.

The longer this feeling lasts, the higher the risk that the 2nd toe could raise up and become somewhat disjointed.

We’ve seen some pretty significant deformities of the 2nd toe that started with this weird feeling on the ball of the foot.

If you have this feeling now, don’t ignore it. Start with the remedies listed above.

If the feeling doesn’t improve after a couple of weeks, the first step is to have it accurately diagnosed.

Resolving the pain quickly is needed to prevent a deformity or tear.

Ignoring that weird feeling on the ball of your foot can lead to an avoidable, unfortunate problem that could require surgery.

“Dr. Google” isn’t entirely wrong, but getting a real diagnosis and fast solution will save you from long-term pain.
