I have Osteoarthritis, Fibomyalgia and Spinal Stenosis. I have a painful Bunion on my left foot and now my second toe, the one next to the big toe is completely crossing over on top of the third toe! Podiatrist told me that besides fixing the Bunion, thye tendons and ligaments are damaged and must be repared and a pin inserted onto the crooked toe to straighten it! What could be causing the toe to misaalign like this? Now the second toe on my right foot is starting to do the same!

Hello Anonymous,

I would like to welcome you to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us for information on the cause of the misaligned toes.
This question is best addressed to the podiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon. Before you decide to go ahead with the recommended surgery, schedule an appointment and ask your question. You should have a complete understanding of the condition, the reason for the progressive misalignment, and the pros and cons of having the surgery.

Please keep us updated.
