Could You Potentially Have Metatarsalgia?
Suffering from forefoot pain? There are many potential causes for that pain. 52 of our body’s 206 bones are in our feet. None of them are a regular shape. The foot is much more complex in its structure and function than most realize. Pain in the main joint of the big toe, for example, could be the end result of the bowing of the lower leg, and/or tight calf muscles. Maybe your shoes are too tight, even though they seem to be the right size, or maybe the soles are too flexible. Perhaps your metatarsals are out of position, or even your shoes are fit to the big toe, and the 2nd and 3rd toes are as long as or even longer than the big toe. Maybe you have some inflamed nerves (neuritis) or maybe your friend is right that according to Google, you must have a Morton’s neuroma.
