My partner has been off work for 2 months with what he thinks/drs think is metatarsalgia or mortons neuroma. He thinks he got it througfh wearing shoes that were a bit small. It seems to get a little better when he rests it but then he tries to do something normal like go in afew shops and it completely sets it back again and he is back to square one. He went for an xray and nothing showed but since then it doesn't seem to be moving forward. The gp has now told him to self refer to a podiatrist but we rang them and they say it could be weeks before he is even seen. If he then needs an operation or something he could be waiting months I am guessing. I have read that you can get it diagnosed through ultra sound. Should we be pushing for this or should we just try and pay for a private podiatrist? We don't have much money but he has a very physical job as a gardener and he cannot do it. It needs to be moving forward but i am unsure what to do next. Any exp/advice welcome please
