I want to know if there is anyone out there that has a bone spur below the big toe.  Most people get them at there ball of the foot.  I have mine below the front toe.  The only relief I get is going around without shoes on.  The bone is actually sticking out a little.  I can feel it in most shoes.  I know I saw a orthopedic doc a few years ago and he told me that someday I would need to get it fused.  I feel I am too young for that now at 57.
Do you think a foot doctor could help me?

I think that sense it is foot related a podiatrist might be the best person to see, or at least contact, about this. They might know of options that a general ortho might not be aware of.

Take care,

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

Owwww Smokey,
Bone spurs are painful. I have them in my back but I'm not WALKING
on them and I can't see them except through MRI.
A Podiatrist might be the one for you to see. With Winter coming on shoes
become more necessary.
In California, it's just been wintry for the past few days.
