What would cause Metatarsal pain in both feet? I do have Morton's toe, where my second toe is bigger than my big toe, on both feet.

What would cause Metatarsal pain in both feet? I do have Morton's toe, where my second toe is bigger than my big toe, on both feet.

Metatarsalgia: See your podiatrist so he can take xrays of your feet. This way they can be evaluated to see if the lesser toes are longer than the big toe and that is why there is pain due to transfer pressure to the longer metatarsals. Orthotics can be made to help redistribute the forces under foot and to better balance out the pressures and thereby alleviating the pain. ...Read more

Left big toe tendon has lumps bumps and swelling along it and big toe is painful . Throbbing pain in big toe too?

Left big toe tendon has lumps bumps and swelling along it and big toe is painful . Throbbing pain in big toe too?

I would: See a foot doctor. The question is are the lumps or bumps really on the tendon or in the subcutaneous tissues.....either way you should be examined, much easier to make a diagnosis like that in person... Possible ganglionic cyst is an example without seeing you but if I saw your foot inperson I would know right away if that's what you had. ...Read more

Broke foot per ER doc. Big toe points toward others slightly. Getting a cam walker but should I buddy tape big toe to next toe. In a lot of pain still.

Broke foot per ER doc. Big toe points toward others slightly. Getting a cam walker but should I buddy tape big toe to next toe. In a lot of pain still.

Depends: Hi-- so it depends on what is broken. It appears as if you have a slight bunion deformity...The "big toe points toward others"--nothing to worry about as long as it is not the big toe that is broken and/or big toe is not painful. We do not buddy tape big toes and splinting is not really appropriate for bunions. Let me know what bone is broken and we can go further with options. ...Read more

Have a bunion whrre my big toe is pressing against my second toe. The tip of my second toe is numb. Could that be the cause?

Yes: Bunions and the deformity associated w/ them( hallux valgus) can press on the second toe and cause deformity ( hammertoes, etc.). Pressure on the second toe digital nerve can certainly cause numbness you are experiencing. See your orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist for evaluation. Best of Luck! ...Read more
