In Reply to: foot structure causing pain? posted by ab on September 09, 2000 at 00:10:55:
: I am a female that has very masculine, wide feet. They are naturally wide, with additional fat (or something) on the outsides, which forms two subtle bumps. I often have foot pain, and they inflame and redden very easily. Is the structure the reason for the pain? I would appreciate any input!! Thanks.
My podiatrist said that flat feet plays a role in the majority of foot/leg pain. Oh yes do I have
Also he mentioned that if you have flat feet and bunions they will only get worse.
as your foot structure causes them to spread. I had bunion surgery on 5/5/00 and I had no major
problems..wearing my old shoes without any discomfort..although the left side (bunion removal)
is a little loose LOL nothing that a shoe insert wont fix.
Also are you sure the excess fat is not a bony extension which would be a bunion
