severe shooting pian in ball of foot that radiates out to toes

I have always had occasional foot cramps. They are severe shooting pain in between my 2nd & 3rd toes, in the ball of my foot that radiates out into my toes. The two affected toes arch away from each other, and the ball of my foot arches down. Lately, the frequency and duration of the cramps has increased. I am getting them on an almost daily basis, and I had one cramp last for 45 minutes. I have tried stretching, but it doesn't make the cramp go away any faster. I can't do anything while I am having a cramp. The cramps are more severe in my right foot. I went to see a podiatrist. He told me I had a Morton's Neuroma in both feet, with the one in my right foot being larger. He didn't think my cramps were connected with the Morton's neuromas, though, since the cramps were between a different set of toes. He had never heard of cramps like mine, and was no help to me. He didn't even offer to do anything to treat my Morton's neuromas. I was wondering if it were possible if the neuromas were compressing all of my toes together, and were indirectly causing the cramps. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
