Foot/toe problems

Hiya! New to this place, but I need some advice.

I am now 27 and have had incredibly pained feet (big toe/ball of foot) since I can remember. I grew up and out pretty quickly and have euro 42 planks. I disguised that I needed new shoes as a kid - my parents couldn't afford etc. Now I have weird warped feet. Very, very painful feet! Link below:

From link, are my feet in relaxed mode. I can't extend any of my toes. You can see my left foot is already in epic bunion formation. I have been trying to get back into running, but I simply can't without pain or dislocating a toe joint. This happens on at least a weekly basis, and I've learnt to reset myself.

My mother suffers from osteoporosis and arthritis, and is on a cocktail of crap that seems to not be doing much (she is 65).

GP has had a look but isn't concerned because of my age and general health.

6 months into trying aqua fitness and taking high dose omega 3/gluco.

Am in New Zealand, if that helps!

Any advice, ideas would be appreciated! Thanks

Re: Foot/toe problems

Go see a sports med ortho who specializes in foot and ankle surgery. That's your best bet. Check around with some athletes or professional dancers and see who they use.
