My podiatrist said I have hallux limitus (I guess its osteoarthritis in the big toe joint) the joint area is getting larger & more painful. I am only comfortable wearing athletic type shoes, I do have some pain even then. He told me I could have surgery to clean out the joint area on the big toe...has anyone had this?? The toe joint gets very painful when I do a lot of walking. I also am very active, lots of tennis/running & walking, aerobics etc. I still am able to do these things but I think its affecting the way I run & walk. Ibuprofin seems to help. Please if anyone has this type of problem & has had the joint area cleaned I sure would appreciate it, I don't know what to do. It would be nice to wear a nicer pair of shoes again & I have a closet full of shoes I cannot wear. Thanks. Cindy
