Pain in ball of foot after bunion acted up.  Pain for over two weeks in ball. I work a lot on my feet & enjoy taking walks. What could be causing pain?

Weight shift: When you a have a bunion, depending on its severity, your weight can shift from the area beneath the bunion to the other bones in the ball of the foot. X-rays would show the length differences between the 1st and 2nd metatarsals. If the 2nd metatarsal is significantly longer than the 1st, it would bear more weight resulting in more pain in that area. ...Read more

I have bunions and my toes look like these are pointing outwardly can I get operation to correct this.

I have bunions and my toes look like these are pointing outwardly can I get operation to correct this.

Yes: Yes bunion correction and hammertoe correction are very common fixable problems. However if there is any type of chemo therapeutic agents being used presently it would be unlikely due to a decreased immune system. You would have to talk to your oncologist to see if it will be safe right now. Otherwise the surgery would have to be postponed for now. But it would certainly be able to be fixed in the future. ...Read more

Pain on the side of my big toe? Corn? Bunion?

Pain on the side of my big toe? Corn? Bunion?

Different: If the pain is from hard skin, you have a corn or callus. Basically they are the same tissue, with a corn being more focal and a callus, more diffuse. A bunion is the boney enlargement where the big toe and the metatarsal behind it meet. The big toe is usually leaning toward the lesser toes. If the boney lump is on the toe itself, this is an exostosis. See a podiatrist for discussion of treatment. ...Read more

Is there anyway to fix a bunion and hammer toes without surgery?

No: In 30 years of practice, I have never seen a bunion corrected by orthotics, splinting or other external devices. Certainly, improving the biomechanics of the foot can help prevent bunions by slowing or arresting their development, but once the deformity is present, surgery is the only method of "curing" it. That being said, many small deformities may respond to shoe modification or simple padding. ...Read more

Can you have a bunion on the top of big toe. Left big toe is turning inward & i can't bend it down as far as right toe.

Can you have a bunion on the top of big toe. Left big toe is turning inward & i can't bend it down as far as right toe.

Yes: A bump on the top of the big toe joint develops with jamming of that joint and formation of spurring. This can be caused by trauma or elevation of the metatarsal bone. Early treatment consists of steroid injections and custom inserts to improve joint function. As it advances, surgery may be needed to restore joint function, insert a joint implant or even fuse the joint to stop painful motion. ...Read more

Will my bunion come back after toe realignment? After a toe realignment, is there any chance the bunion will come back?

It is possible: Bunion deformities are the result of foot type and abnormal foot function. Surgery repairs the deformity, but can not address all the functional factors that lead to this deformity. Improving foot function is critical in long term protection of the surgical correction. " if you don't balance the wheel, the tire will wear out faster".

Arthritis type: Bunions is a arthritis related to deformity. Will be painful when pressure is rubbing on the deformity such as certain tight or types of shoes.

How can I tell if my toe pain is a developing bunion or gout?

Sometimes not Easy.: Sometimes separating the two possibilities is not so easy. More than once, I have been referred a patient for the wrong initial assessment. A very mild gout attack can mimic an inflamed bunion problem. The proof of the pudding is in the clinical presentation, experience and the family history. A person having a raging attack is a whole lot easier to recognize and differentiate from bunion. ...Read more
