herbhead16 daysAlot of rest...some NSAID. It was probably completley better a couple of days ago, but wanted to give it a couple of extra days.details
Tooms19 days3 weeks of nothing but a couple of spins. Now week 3 is ending can start to paddle, ride and swim in week 4. No running until around week 8. No pain since surgery - just some swelling under the foot. Nothing of any note. :-)details

CoachingEnduranc24 daysi reported this as healedf with "still icing it now but it doesn't really hurt anymore"details
cmorse29 daysAs of early November, I can still feel it occasionally, but it doesn't bother me at all, even after all the running and falling down I did in Virginia. So it hasn't really 'healed', but its no longer an issue I'm worrying about. update - March 6th - Haven't felt anything in 3.5 months, so this ones history...details
Inprin37 days3rd and 4th toe on right foot still partially numb. It no longer hurts to run and there is no more swelling. Will the feeling ever return or has permanent damage been done?details
mhegdahl41 daysib profen and icing for 10-15 min really helped. Excercising and rest didn't seem to do anything. slow milage build up is best.details
sjreeve71 dayspain flared up again during the Dublin marathon but recovered soon enough. although haven't run "long" for a while. taping the toes seemed to help to relieve pressure on the nerve. gentle running on a treadmill on incline benefited. after 70 odd days there appears to be little pain instead of the "pins and needles" to severe electric shock treatment that seemed to be going on details

Inprin89 daysGoing to say it is over. I still feel stress in the area but the Orthotics are working to keep pressure off. The orthotics don't fit well arounfd the heel or the length.details
Munter Hitch137 days3/21 I feel fine. I did not use any pain killer. Ice helped and so did wearing shoes with big toe boxes. My La Sportiva Wildcats Trail Shoes toe box is expandable and they allowed the foot to expand without pitching on the effected nerve. I highly recommend that type of shoe for anyone with Mortons. details

Garrison201 days2/2/2017 - Although I can still feel this, I'm going to call it recovered. Lesson learned, get bike shoes that are more comfortable and the right damn size. Running in roomy shoes like Altras definitely seemed to help as long as I didn't overdo it.details
Tooms262 daysBackyard cortisone injection on 15 July seems to have (temporarily) fixed it. Unlike the ultrasound guided one a few months back which made it worse. Have run 5 times since normally with no pain whatsoever. Booking a surgery date also seems to have caused it to pretend to recover.details
