What are the signs of a pinched nerve?

A pinched nerve is another term for nerve that has excessive pressure placed on it. When this condition develops in the foot, it can bring a great deal of discomfort. The signs of a pinched nerve include tingling and numbness in the ball of your foot, burning in the ball of your foot, swelling and pain between your toes, and pain in the forefoot or ball of the foot when weight is placed on the foot. Most commonly, we hear our patients complain of pain in their toes while walking.
