Hi, although they have always been this way i didn't know it was abnormal until recently, both of my big toes do not bend...i have never been able to bend them but thought it was normal, until my latest girlfriend pointed it out that it's not, and since then iv'e become very paranoid about them, would anyone be able to help with reasons as to why they may be this way?
Which joint doesn't bend? There are two in the bog toe. And were they this way as a child are just since adulthood? Do they hurt when you try to bend them? And how is your gait when you walk - rolling up on the toes is a normal motion.
Hi and thanks for the reply, both joints do not bend and i believe they have been this way since birth as i can't recall them ever being able to bend, which i suppose made me think it was normal. There is pain when i try to bend them as it feels like i'm forcing something to break or split, my walking and running is fine, i play football regurlaly and feel i would play differently could they bend. Again i feel everything i do regarding my feet is normal as iv'e never know any other way.
Hi, just wondering if you ended up seeing about this and what was said? I have the same problem and always thought it was normal until a few years ago. My mum had never noticed when I was little so Im not sure if they've always been that way (I assume they have!) or if they've fused over time. Ive never known anyone else to have this problem until I googled it tonight and this came up!
