Bunion type thing
Could anyone help with this, it's affecting my running ... as in, I'm hardly running at the moment.
I have not quite a bunion on my right foot, more like a halux valgue or whatever, it's like the start of a bunion. Anyway, after about a year's sabbatical from running, I started again and my right big toe isn't too happy. Whenever I try to flex it with my sock off, it doesn't feel right at all. If I manually wiggle and waggle it, I get a clicky crunchy sort of response from the toe.
I can run short distances on it OK, but I'm worried I will cause further damage to it.
Any ideas? Ta.
I should be so yucky.
probaly best to get it checked out by a podiatrist or other foot specialist, with the anglulation of the toe there may be some degeneration in the joint wich will cause pain, alternatively it could just be tendon/muscle pain in the area caused by doing too much to soon.
the outcome will probably ber some kind of orthotic insert and a firm shoe but this is dificult to say without seeing the foot
Hmmm, don't like the sound of this much.
OK, thanks guys.
Will make an appointment with podiatrist at some stage.
But in teh meantime, I just worked out by swinging a 32kg weight 170 times. Once I got to 100, I took shoes off and did it on soft ground. Immediately afterwards I gently pulled my big toe away from my little toe and it went CRACK. Feels so much better now
Rest of my body feels totally sh*gged though.
So there you have it.
