Hadn't checked this thread for a while....bad feet and bad health...hmmm. Bad feet since '99. Bad health only for last 4 yrs, though. But bad feet truly suck. Toes are better now, but one of them was already somewhat rigid. But it fits in my shoes so far.
The metatarsal head pain is the worst right now. After I give Enbrel another couple of months (it's been 1 already), I'll probably head back to my nice foot/ankle specialist and see what he can do to help. Right now, it hurts bones to lace sneakers to last holes so I stop at the next-to-last (nearest ankle).
Elmer, your pins make me shudder. Hugs to you. Carol, you should get those mallet toes released (tenotomy) before the joint gets rigid. I speak from experience.
