Re: Morton's Neuroma

I am a runner and have been suffering from Mortons Neuroma. My POD has given me cortisone treatments with limited sucess. Besides surgery, there is a treatment where alcohol is injected into the nerve. This is done on seven day intervals for 4 to 6 weeks. This is intended to reduce the swelling. Have you heard of this treatment and has it been sucessful?? I am in training for the Boston Marathon in April and this neuroma is preventing me from training. I am still experimenting with orthotics but it seems to be a hit and miss. Placement seems critical. Any other suggestions???
