    49 Year old Male with stage II to III HR in my left foot.  Ive heard some people and doctors say that the loss in ROM after a fusion doesn't inhibit activities for the most part. My toe is stiff and barely moves already, and there is nagging pain. With the fusion, it would still be stiffer,...

  • Make Myself Walk Properly After Metatarsal Fractures

    Hi!  I fractured numbers 2, 3, 4 & 5 metatarsals (the neck area) in mid-March, tripping badly while following a map on my mobile (lesson learnt!).  I've moved from half-leg cast to off-loading shoe to 'slowly does it' weight bearing.  It's now nearly 15 weeks and, although...

  • Peripheral Arterial Disease

    I have had neuropathy in both feet for nearly two years, This was discovered by a podiatrist but I was not advised to see a doctor as it was not something that can usually be cured but I would only be sent to a pain clinic. As I have always had a phobia of doctors for various reasons, I decided to accept...

  • What is this on my big toe?

    Hi - I've had something on the bottom of my big toe for several months now. I thought it was hard skin at first but it's not going away and doesn't feel like the rest of my hard skin. It's also now started becoming painful when I walk. It's a white circular thing that looks like...

  • Right big toe burns

    Every winter the tip of my right big toe burns. My podiatrist says it’s not gout. I don’t have diabetes. Prob mild arthritis but nothing severe. Could this be from pinched nerve elsewhere or raynauds?  None of my other toes are affected so doubtfully raynauds.

    Hi there, I️ had my cartilage surgery in Baltimore, MD about 3 weeks ago. I feel great but the toe is still a bit stiff.  I have been to PT twice but was wondering what types of exercises were most beneficial to get your flexibility back in your toe? Thanks for your replies Jeanne

  • 5th Metatarsal Fracture

    Looking for some advice.  I recently visited the podiatrist due to foot pain and after x-rays it was determined that I have a 5th metatarsal fracture. The doctor was a bit less than helpful and left me with many questions.  My fracture was not the result of trauma and I'm not sure how long...

  • Foot Injury - no successful diagnosis

    Injured my foot a year ago, skateboarding. I though it was turf toe, from so much extension. Around the same time, I also had some blunt force trauma on the first metatarsal, also while skating.
