Sometimes I feel swelling under my pinkie toe on my left foot, well I guess that's what I feel. It's only noticeable when I bend my toes. Visually everything looks fine, it doesn't look swollen. Also, I only feel this swelling under my little toe when I walk around the house barefooted. I've had two doctors, well 1 doctor & a nurse practioner, to check it out. Both said that they didn't feel anything, nor did anything appear out of order… Has anyone experienced this? Is this something I should be worried about?

Maybe it's an aging thing, I can't walk around the house barefooted like I use to…. :D

Hi David, could it be a little neuropathy? The bottoms of all my toes feel that way sometimes, usually if my BS is too high. I cannot walk barefooted anymore, even in the summer, my feet are always cold. :)

Actually, yes. I was diagnosed with neuromas. The podiatrist I saw said they can be removed, but causes more grief than just leaving them. Neuromas are a swelling that is located on the nerves between the metatarsals in your foot. Nothing to be seen by the naked eye, but they can be seen in ultrasound.

Thanks for the info.... maybe I should see a podiatrist... It doesn't hurt or anything, just when I bend my toes after I've walked barefooted for 30m or so, it feels a little swollen...

Thx for quick response..

Hi dhender02 - I was wondering if you ever figured anything out about the swollen feeling of your little toe. I have the exact same thing with my little toe on my right foot. It feels swollen but it's not, and sometimes it feels just fine but I notice it when I bend it.

Thanks,

kgbuster
