Should I take a B complex when I have neuroma?

Hi,
My name is Mercedes.
I have neuroma in both of my feet for 20 years. Lately, I learned about the chemical distraction of it with injection. Should I go for it? Also if I want the nerve to be distracted should I be taking vitamin B complex for regenerating the nerve?

Please help! I got to the point that I can't handle it.
I do not have any x-ray to send.

Thanks
Mercedes

Hello Mercedes,
You are a strong lady; to put up with a Morton's neuroma in both feet for twenty years is a significant achievement; however the long wait was probably quite needless.

There are different opinions on what causes a Morton's neuroma, but in my experience it's very much related to improper biomechanics in the foot or ankle; often it causes plantar myofascitis too. In short it hurts and I'm not surprised you can't handle it.

It's a pretty ugly operation; I would certain suggest consulting a chiropractor with experience in treating feet before going under the knife. Not just expensive orthotics but someone who knows how to correct the subluxations in the foot.

A B complex is never contraindicated in the treatment of any nerve condition, but frankly I doubt it will do much for a Morton's neuroma.

Let me know how you get on. A chiropractor incidentally with FICS qualification would be good; sports chiropractic.
