yup its d. morton's neuroma

Morton's neuroma is an enlarged nerve between the third and fourth toes....lateral plantar nerve n medial plantar nerve combines at this area n form a large nerve...it is located between transverse metatarsal ligament n cutaneous tissue of foot...on running it is prone to compression bet this 2 structure...n causes pain....
