extensor digitorum brevis spasms

Does anyone have any experience with this? I am desperately looking for help. This is where the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th toe move involuntarily, most likely because of the tendon. Perhaps this is caused by a Morton's Neuroma surgery gone wrong. The tendon clenches and protrudes in spasms, and the 2nd toe sticks up and points to the right, sometimes overlapping and pushing the third toe down. If I try to correct this by putting a metatarsal pad on the ball of my foot, the strain shifts to the fourth toe (in exactly the spot of the Neuroma surgery), making the toe curl under, painfully, as if in a hammertoe position. When this happens, the tendon on the bottom of my foot is felt to be obviously pulling that fourth toe down. Does ANY of this sound famiiar? If so, PLEASE respond. Thanks!

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
