I have a Herniated Disk T11-T12, Scoliosis, and Reverse Curvature of the Neck from a car accident 2.5 years ago. Because of severe leg pain, over the years I have limped and I suppose my gait has changed. I have done chiropractic and spinal strengthening. This just started about a month ago and has gotten worse now. I was doing very well to the point of no pain for months now. Not sure if this is even related though, but I have become more active now that I am back to working.
The side-top more internal of my right foot of my large toe has become very painful. I cannot walk on any flat surfaces, and anytime I push on the side of the ball it hurts. I cannot bend my large toe upwards or downwards, or to the right without pain. But I can to the left. This is my right foot. When I bend it upwards, it hurts internally at the e joint I believe. Now, it's not really swollen, and doesn't get purple or anything, SOMETIMES it appears slightly swollen at the ball joint on the sides, possibly even looks like fluid but nothing really? But nothing else. One of my co-workers said that my ankle even appears to bow inwards. I can't wear dress shoes (I really dont anyways), flip flops, or barely even sneakers which I need to support my back. I tried 2 different pair of sneakers and it made my foot hurt more. My foot feels better with nothing on it, but I REALLY cannot walk without a problem if I don't put something on. The pain first started sometime in May and now is starting to shoot somewhat to the side of the arch and around the foot like it's going towards the ankle.
