Clicking in foot when I walk

I am a 52 year old male. I have begun noticing that my right foot clicks when I walk. There is no pain but I do have the sensation that I am walking on bunched up socks. I have had tingling in my hands and feet for at least half my life, but these latest symptoms are concerning and annoying. Does this always indicate a neuroma even with no pain?

    Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your symptoms it sounds like you may have a neuroma. Often times neuromas are associated with a sharp pain in the foot or toes and/or may produce a clicking sounds as the neuroma slides between the metatarsal heads.

    If you do not have foot pain with your neuroma you can try a metatarsal pad to try and disperse pressure in the foot. Otherwise you may want to monitor it to see if it progresses before doing anything.

    I hope this helps.
