I had to see the podiatrist recently and mentioned about the pain in my MTPJs (the toe joint that is being discussed) who said I also had arthritis in them. Interestingly though she said that my tight calf muscles are exacerbating the condition (it's to do with the three rocker phase or something) so she has advised me to do LOTS of stretches. Hopefully this might help everyone else too as it's not nice at all! All the best to everyone :)

My right big toe joint gives me gyp from time to time, especially during cold spells. GP sent me for an X-ray and reported that it is just "normal wear and tear" . Now the left one is beginning to join in. Not looking forward to this winter.

I have a fairly stiff left big toe, most of the time it doesn't hurt, just affects how I push off when running. I massage both feet using a spikey ball and mobilise my toes, not as often as I should, seems to help.

Got something to say?
