| | Burning painful big toes... new problem!!
Hi all ~
Well, I am 10 weeks post-op and I have been doing fairly well in healing and slowly getting back some normal parts of my life. But a new problem is really getting me down. I am having lots of burning, stabbing pain in both my big toes when I flex my toes or try to move something with my foot. Today I noticed that my left foot has a very tender area on top of the foot... when I touch it, it sends those sharp pains into my big toe. And my big toe is numb on the outside, but burning on the inside! Right after surgery, I had some tingling and numbness in all my toes, but this burning pain is fairly new and getting worse every day. When I look at the charts, it shows big toes are connected to the L4 disk... that is one of the disks that was worked on and which has two screws in it now. Anyone else experience anything similar? Any comments please?
Thanks, Mary in Texas
