electric shock feeling in toe
I get this painful electric shock feeling in my second toe on my right foot. It is very painful and last for maybe 30 sec. to a minute. Is it a nerve from my back or neck? I've received two cortione shots before but they wear off. please help
I am assuming you received the cortisone shots in your foot. This feeling is probably a local nerve irritation, not originating from the back and certainly not from the neck.
My first thought would be a neuroma
If the diagnosis is neuroma, there are other treatments available besides cortisone injections. The rule of thumb for cortisone injections for any musculo-skeletal problem is no more than three in the same area in a twelve month period; so I am not sure a third injection is going to do you much good.
