- I keep stubbing my big toe. Has my body forgotten its geometry?
Same here, except it’s my head. Concussed myself a while back and then kept whacking my head on things every week after. Keep thinking, must not whack my head….then thunk..again. Going to have to put some downhill style padding up at home or my head’s not going to stop hurting. I’ll happily trade a stubbed toe for a permaheadache.Posted 1 year agooutofbreathMember
I find whatever gets hurt I tend to then keep banging it…
Probably this, but when I kept bashing the toe on my right foot on the ground it was ‘drop foot’ caused by a disk in my spine crushing my spinal cord. It was years and more significant symptoms before I went to the doc and got it diagnosed. (After 4 visits, FFS.)
The OP could check his reflexes, see if they’re normal (your looking for “hyper-reflexes”). Also look for clonus.
“Drop foot” is also an early sign of MND.
Probably nothing, but worth checking AFAIC.Posted 1 year agoshootermanMember
Get that checked OP.
I developed a foot drop after abdominal surgery a few years ago. The one time I saw my normally complacent GP get exercised about anything.
Mine started with catching my toe. Turned out to be a back problem affecting dorsal flexion in my right foot.Posted 1 year agoRockhopperMember
I have a condition whereby my foot doesn’t lift up at the front as much as it should when I walk the end result of which is that when I wear certain shoes I constantly catch my toes on imperfections in the footpath etc (oh and the edge of rugs at home as well) – it’s a real pain working in Chesterfield.Posted 1 year ago
