    I used to massage my wife's bunions every evening, 'working' their Big Toe until they clunked. To her consultant's astonishment this really, really helped with alignment and mobility.

    But, I had strong hands, a lot of patience, and a wife who'd rather suffer my 'physio-terrorism' than have the recommended surgery which would 'pin' those joints.
    YMMV.

    Have you ever tried Compeed? I used them in Europe as I was backpacking and they were AWESOME! I would see if you could get a bunch online and stock up!

    I It was me I would go see a doctor. There might be other reasons for the foot pain including being diabetic!

    Amy I worked for 3 different podiatrist I won't tell you not do the surgery but get another opinion they won't tell you your pain can get worse It will say that in the papers you sign. You can get a foam sleeve, slip that over your toe cut a side out so it fits the toe and covers your problem area. I wish you could see the pictures in my head and you would know how to cut the sleeve. Get very wide shoes

    The bunion aid ads that show up at the bottom of this page on my computer is sorta funny. All kidding aside, don't let yourself wind in in a chair for the rest of your life cause your feet hurt. Quality of life is soooo important. Prayers for you.

    Thanks Amy. Will be praying for you as well to get your food better. Pain is no fun. And old age is not for sissies.

    Amy, osteoarthritis is no fun. That is what I have in my right hand. I can't deal with it anymore so am seeing an orthropedic on friday. I to may have to have joint replacement but am hoping they can just clean out the joints of the inflamation and infection but either way I am 6 weeks without my right hand and I am right handed. It hurts to iron clothes, sew and a lot of other things I need to do. And dropping things is getting old.

    Turns out it's not a bunion....doc says I have osteo arthritis and my cartilage is gone..... Need a total joint replacement.... doc has to break my foot, realign it, put screws to hold it in place, and put in a new joint behind my big toe... 6 weeks out of work, then 6 months in a boot due to the work I do.... can't afford to be out of work for 6 weeks, so limping and putting it off....

    Amy, really they are giving you a hard time over foot pain. I do hope you get better soon and the bunion calms down. Wish I had a solution to help you but I don't. I do know my neighbor had one and they removed it. She hasn't had anymore problems with it.

    Do I turn back around and assess how close Ms Amy has advanced, or do I just run while I'm facing in the right direction?
    RUN! Don't look back, just run. LOL!
