Toe Flexion Involuntary Bending
Not toes, but foot.: The gastroc and soleus muscles do not plantarflex the toes they plantarflex the foot. These 2 muscle come together and form the achilles tendon attaching on the back of the heel. There are multiple muscles both in the foot and leg that are involved in plantarflexing the toes. The main PF muscles are the flexor digitorum longus for digits 2,3,4,5 and flexor hallucis longus for the big toe. ...Read more
I have a history of compartment sydrome /fasciotomy to my left foot. I'm having an "electrical" shooting pain to 3 toes upon plantar flexion of my foot.
It's a reflex.: You didn't mention which toe was plantar flexed, but, if you are referring to your big toe, it's caused by some kind of stimulus to the arch of your foot. In clinical practice, we might scrape the arch of your foot with the handle of a reflex hammer. Plantar flexion of the great toe is normal. Dorsiflexion (pointing of the toe upward) is not. But I don't know what the stimulus is in your case. ...Read more

For over 2 months when bending big toe sharp pain above PIP joint area, not in the joint. Numb to the right of pain down to big toe mound. What is it?
A tendon: It seems that you re not feeling pain in the joint, but The Extensor hallucis Longus tendon might be the source. It may have been strained causing some inflammation. Just recently saw a couple of these. The joint may need some range of motion exercises to get that tendon to stretch. It is for some reason, unable to go the distance with flexion of that toe. ...Read more
My big toe is bending and touching my 2nd toe. there is pain every now and then, but i can still move my toe. Any ideas what it could be?
My big toe has curved in slightly to the 2nd toe. No problem bending toe up but some moving it down. No pain. Anything that needs attention?
Is it normal to feel a tendon around the lower part of the fibularis longus move when bending my toes in?
To some extent: The perineal tendons run just distal to the fibula and you could potentially feel the moving as you flex your toes/foot. If you have any concern, do not hesitate to be checked. A simple exam should be able to tell if their is anything abnormal going on. ...Read more
