Footproblems.Need advice.With picture!

Posted by   + Show Post
Hello,

I have developed some changes in my forefeet  and toes .Maybe from wearing heels too much.I have difficulties when i have to walk longer distances.Especially und my toe joints (balls of my feet). I have callouses and corns there...and finding shoes is really not easy. I cant afford any operation in the moment (maybe there is anohter way,I dont know).Does anyone know what I can do ?

This is a picture of my left foot.So you can see what kind of problem I have.


Maybe someone has a similar problem and got some advice ?

Thank you. Kelly

see if there is a teaching hospital nearby that has sliding scale fees..the longer you wait, the worse it will become and harder to fix--you could end up not being able to walk at all

Damn, that is a Quasimodo foot. I need foot surgery and my feet look nothing like that. Nothing but surgery can fix that.

The bunion isn't caused by heels

The rest could be the shoes are too small

Well, my second toe now disclocated in the basic joint (because of the deformations) wich make this toe overlap the big one.The Xrays show  that theres no connection between the second toe and the metatarsal bone. The only solution : Operation. The problem : Cant afford it :-(.

Looking like this now:
