On top of my foot by my second toe I have seaver pain like a charlie horse?

On top of my foot by my second toe I have seaver pain like a charlie horse?

Have it checked out: Severe pain on the top of the foot feeling like a charlie horse is not a common finding. Your recent activity history, how much your run or walk for exercise can affect this. If it's acute and relieved by pain meds, then that's not as much a problem as if it's been continuous without relief. Best is to have it checked out by your doctor to see what the exam shows, and to know for sure what it is. ...Read more

Second toe on right foot numb at top of toe, I do occasionally wear wedges, what could cause this, and how to help it?

Second toe on right foot numb at top of toe, I do occasionally wear wedges, what could cause this, and how to help it?

Nerve compression: Depending on the heel height, your foot can slide forward even in a wedge and in some cases can keep pressure at the top/tip of the 2nd toe. This pressure can create nerve compression and cause numbness. To alleviate this you can try a lower heel or consider use of a ball of the foot pad just behind the ball of the foot to restore the transverse arch. You can also see a podiatrist for options. ...Read more

I am having pain on my foot where my second toe on my right foot connects to my foot. Swollen also! I have been to the doc already should I go again?

Yes: In addition to dr. Schnur's comment, pain at that particular joint can also be associated with pre-dislocation syndrome, or damage to the joint from overload/overuse. Untreated this will lead to joint instabliity and dislocation. Another specific cause is an injury called avascular necrosis (freibergs infraction.) it is imporant to get a correct diagnosis and treatment to avoid future problems. ...Read more

English Bunion: You have given a pretty good description of a typical bunion deformity of the great toes. The great toe is also shifting laterally or toward the little toe causing a subsequent hammering of the second toe. The stiffness is due to the excessive bone growth around the joint which not only causes pain but can also change the way you walk. All flannel aside, you need to have it evaluated for a fix. ...Read more

To remove, or not.: I'm not quite sure if you are describing the undersurface or the top of the toe. Either way, these seemingly hard lumps most often involve soft tissue cysts such as synovial cysts. They can appear hard, because they are packed with a viscous jelly like fluid. There is the possibility that a boney enlargement is also involved and only an x-ray can verify that. Check with surgeon for treatment. ...Read more
