Is the big toe the only one that becomes a hammertoe?

No. No, actually it is the other toes that are more commonly affected in hammertoe. Don't hesitate to be seen if you are having trouble with your toes.
No, the second, third, and fourth toes are most commonly affected.

Podiatrist. Try a podiatrist. It sounds like your toe is bothering you enough to get a second opinion. Read more...
ALREADY HAMMERED? If it's moving on top of the big toe, it sounds like you already have a hammer toe deformity. As an adult, splinting or taping will not realign it. If a corn develops, a podiatrist can trim it. A wider toe box in your shoe may help. It will PROBABLY continue to progress. Surgery is an option if above doesn't work for you. Read more...

I have a hammertoe and my ankle and right foot swells and is in constant ache/pain all the way up to my knee. It's hard to get up after sitting?

You need to see. a podiatrist to treat the hammertoes, and/or an Orthopedic specialist to treat your knee pain. It sounds like poor foot support from abnormal anatomy/ gait has caught up to you. Or the problems could be independent of one another. Use some glucosamine chondroitin to see if your knee and ankle pain will improve. Read more...
Swelling and pain. Typically, a hammer toe would not cause ankle and foot swelling, as you describe. The constant ache/pain is concerning in that it goes all the way to the knee. The significance is that you could be describing a condition involving an inflamed blood vessel or possibly, a clot, in your leg. I would see a doctor immediately, since clots, left untreated, could have catastrophic results. Read more...

I had surgery about 7 years ago, on my foot because I had a bunion and a hammertoe! I have screws now I got cysts in my knees painful walking it screw?

No. Although internal hardware can occasionally become loose and cause local irritation it would not directly affect your knees. Read more...
Not the screw. The cysts in your knees are not due to the screw used to correct your bunion deformity. If you are having pain in the big toe joint area, the screw could be a factor. Exam & x-ray would be needed to check the screw. You need to provide more info to be helped regarding the apparent "cysts in your knees.". Read more...
Not likely. The screw itself in your foot is not likely the cause of cysts in your knees. If you have pain at the site of the retained hardware, it may need to come out, but in general it will not cause pain or changes elsewhere in your body. Read more...
Hardware. If hardware is painful , it causes pain where the hardware is located, not elsewhere in the body. See your orthopedist for the knee pain good luck. Read more...
