As many women could tell you, wearing high heels is a hassle and a pain. However, women are willing to put up with wearing heels in order to appear elegant and chic. However, the rise in a particular type of foot pain in middle-aged women could encourage even the most fashionable lady to leave the heels at home.

Doctors are diagnosing more and more women with Morton’s neuroma, a condition that irritates the nerve running between the toes.
