My big toe is not red or hot to touch. Its alittle painful with walking but severe pain is when it touches anything. Sleeping at night i cant let sheet or blanket touch the joint esp the inner side. Been told by ortho i need toe fused because of deformity but its been mainly the larger joint. This joint pain is new.
Hi, Everyone! Yes - I have had both big toes fused and all of my small toes have been 'pinned,' (after their respective 'knuckles' have been removed). Having your Big Toe fused is a great idea. It stops pain completely as the physician will also straighten your toe(s). Unfortunately, it will take several weeks to recuperate, but, in the end - you'll feel remarkably better and you can focus on the next joint replacement! Hang in there!
Best Wishes everyone. I have such sever Knee ache, it's so depressing. Walking is a mission, driving is a mission. I tried a paste of garlic and ginger mixed with course salt (read on facebook for joint pain). Day one was wonderful. Day two was disastorus I had second degree burns on my knee.
The burns have healed, the pain hasn't gone away and I find that it goes all the way down my leg to my small toe.
Exercise they say. So I am trying the HasFit exercise programme for seniors and people with mobility issues. You can do it seated. It's ok at least gets one moving.
Take care everyone.
I had the joint replaced 28 years ago and it was great til recently when they had to take it out and fuse the toe. 28 years is pretty good, though!😁
