Different toe Box.: So let me see. The outside of the big toes and the outside of the little toes, both hurt and are a little red. The first place I would be looking for a cause is your shoes. The areas in question are the areas that that receive the most pressure from shoes that are not fitting your foot right. Red dry looking and aching are the warning signs of ingrown toenails, or at least inflamed nail borders. ...Read more

Why do my fingers, toes and back ache unless i try to crack them?

Why do my fingers, toes and back ache unless i try to crack them?

Several reasons: It may be the way you are built or that your musculature is just tight. Cracking noise or sensation can be from several origins ranging from the small joints of your back "popping" like the cracking of your knuckles to tight soft tissue structures giving the same sensation when stretched or moving over one another or another musculoskeletal structure. It is not a pathologic or bad thing. ...Read more

I'm diabetic type 2. At night in bed my right great toe has mild ache but no redness or swelling. Possible causes?

I'm diabetic type 2. At night in bed my right great toe has mild ache but no redness or swelling. Possible causes?

Sounds like nerves: Positional changes in the back as you lay down can sometimes create pain as a result of compression of the nerve roots that relay and control the sensation in the foot. As a diabetic, this is the more likely scenario, but it is important that you have proper regular foot exams with podiatry to verify and prevent other issues to your feet. ...Read more

I cannot lose weight and have high insulin after body check and my 3rd toe on the right aches. Any recommendations?

Everyone looses wt: if they eat enough less. Difficulty: doing this without much hunger. To loose body fat, must ? foods which are stored as fat; i.e. mostly carbs.

Lately towards the end if my 6-8 miles walk, my toes all begin to ache and hurt. Only when I take my shoes off, massage them will this disappear.

Those darn shoes: "Lately" sounds like this is a recent thing. Since all your toes are doing this, I would first consider the shoes. The toe box, fit etc. Next the socks. The toes seem to be working overtime and are fatiguing in the later miles. ...Read more

My husband wakes up with sore legs often. Its dull aches from toes to knees and lower back. He thinks its from walking in flip flops. Do you agree?

My husband wakes up with sore legs often. Its dull aches from toes to knees and lower back. He thinks its from walking in flip flops. Do you agree?

Yes: Flip flops offer no support for your feet and arches. As a result the arches fall or pronate. This creates an imbalance which places more pressure on the inside or medial aspect of both feet. There is more pressure on the toes and there is internal rotation or torque on both knees, hips. This will make hom tip forward when he stands and place more strain on his lower back. Try rainbow sandals. ...Read more
