About a year ago, I started having a strange sensation in one of my feet. Walking totally bare foot, I felt like I had a sock bunched up under the ball of my foot. Soon after that, I started having back and leg pain. Podiatrist thought foot issue was mortons neuroma but that has been proven false. I've had an mri showing that I have 2 herniated discs and they are pinching my sciatic nerve. Over the past few months, my first toe, the one next to my big toe on BOTH feet, has started to separate from my other toes and it almost laying on top of my big toe. There is now pain in my toes. I've tried chiropractors, spinal injections, physical therapy, now maybe surgery is my only option. I'm trying to figure out if the herniated discs and sciatic nerve could be causing my toe issues. Drs can't seem to put the two together and I don't want to have unnecessary surgery. Please help!!
