I have a history of Osteoarthritis i.e. both knees (several Arthroscopes), right great toe (fused 2003) and left great toe (cheilectomy 2006) so I guess it's fair to say I have a predisposition to it. My left great toe has been giving pain again and an x-ray confirms a 1cm spur so my GP is referring me to an orthopedic surgeon.
My question is it possible to get Osteoarthritis in the smaller toes as I have numbness in the middle toe of my right foot and that has always preceded the pain where it has materialized in the big toes?
When I went to my GP with this latest problem she wasn't keen to send me for an x-ray but I pushed for it and you can only do so much in a ten minute appointment so I didn't get a chance to ask her and I can only find references to great toes on the web.
Thanks in Anticipation.
