Cannot move toes

Posted by sarah on 7/26/03 at 16:27 (125297)

I ruptured the great toe tendon, while getting out of bed one morning. I also somehow forced my small toes the opposite way. Its really hard to explain, however I cannot 'curl' my small toes no matter how hard I try. I also have a severe burning sensation over the pad of my foot behind the small toes. Is it possible that I may have ruptured tendons underneath the toes???

I am sure that other nerves became injured with the tendon rupture. That takse alot of force to do. Show your doctor the areas that hurt and he or she can examine all the flexor and extensor tendons
