Re: bent toes
Foot and toe pain and deformity of the toes may be caused by rheumatoid arthritis. I would see a rheumatologist and get checked for that, and perhaps consult an orthopedic surgeon after the rheum visit if the toe deformity is so bad you can't wear shoes. They can also fit you with orthotics to cushion where needed, and toe separators can help keep toes from rubbing together. These can be purchased at the drug store. The gel kind are soft and comfortable. Wear shoes with wide, high toe boxes to prevent cramping and friction. Your feet are so important to keep you mobile, you need to find out what is causing this.
