broken pinkie toe and raynauds
I broke my left pinkie toe at the end of May and have been through several different treatments. Its a hairline fracture that goes from the left side of my toe *down* towards the bottom of the toe (just phalange, not metatarsal).
I tried buddy taping the toe to the next toe, with an without a splint (popsicle stick).
My podiatrist now has me on a orthopedic shoe (the kind with the velcro that they give you after you’re had surgery).
The problem is I have raynauds disease as well.
I can only wear socks of a certain thickness with this orthopedic shoe.
I started having problems with this shoe in terms of tingling and numbness in my other toes on this foot.
Then last night while I was at work (air conditioned office), my entire foot became stiff and swelled up.
By the time I got home, I could barely walk.
I have a call into my podiatrist, but I don’t think he listens well enough.
Would an orthopedic shoe cause problems (besides with the sock/air condition issue) for someone like me with reynauds?
What other treatment would you suggest?
