Pain base proximal phalange on walking

Posted by peter f on 3/05/03 at 13:28 (111884)

Have any docs seen this in PF sufferers-for 2 yrs I have had this as an extra bonus to the heel and arch pain-it feels like I am walking on the bone of the base of my 3rd toe just where a slip of pf inserts-I remember it hurting like crazy after one squash game 2 yrs ago-have you seen it ? can it get better with time? (ps I dont feel it in my Birks but that is the only time I dont feel it when walking)

PPS-???ESWT in that spot??

sorry Dr z-I know you have already answered this question-I must be losing it! my main question is wether eswt may help such a small spot-although I suppose not licensed
