Went to the podiatrist and he viewed the problem on left foot-third toe curling under second,fourth toe and pinky toe curling down. Said weakness in tendons of third and fourth and arthritis in fourth and pinky toe as well as pinky toe of right foot. Recommended spacers and shoes which were wider in toes. I do not wear high heels or tight shoes. Any thoughts..will it get better...should I see a rheumatologist?
From my experience, it does not get better, but there are things, such as were mentioned, that help to keep it from getting worse. Don't let a podiatrist talk you into surgery. I second the advise to see an orthopedic ankle and foot doc.
