I've had a pinched and swollen nerve in the middle of my right foot for about two years now. Kept thinking it would go away eventually and it hasn't, consulted a podiatrist last week.......he injected alcohol into the sensory nerve but it didn't help for long. Plan B is to have the nerve removed surgically this winter? Can anyone offer any feedback on a similar problem? My other concern is why is this happening, my left foot lately feels sore so I am concerned that I may be developing a problem with this foot. I have orthopedic foot inserts inside my shoes, much more comfortable but this hasn't prevented or lessened my current injury? Would new and different shoes make a difference? Shimano SPD's currently, if so are there any types of shoes available that may help avoid similar injury?
