For some years now, when walking, my big toe area seems to 'lock' become stiff and is very painful. I have to stop - try and wriggle my toe - this sometimes frees it and I can continue, until the next time. I do not wear high heeled shoes - mostly sports shoe or flat with slight raised heel. Been to Specialist who said there was slight wearing of joint. Got special inserts to wear in shoes from a podiatrist - no help. Has anyone had similar problem?
