Re: pain in the big toe (great hallux)

It would be a 4-5 hour drive for me to come see you..I'm in San Antonio. I know for a fact I couldn't make the drive with the way my foot is now. I do want to say thank you for the help you have given me. It is truly appreciated. I plan to call first thing Monday and get a 2nd opinion and find out about what I can do at this point. My ankle already feels like I have a slight sprain in it from walking on the side of my foot. I don't see any hope but maybe the pain management doctor will have something for me..I don't have another week of walking the way I am now. It is really scary for me cause I'm only 20 and hoping I'll be back to normal eventually. Again thank you for your time and advice.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
