I have numerous toes becoming hammer toes. I wonder if this condition adds to the pain in these feet?
I developed Reynalds disease in my feet unrelated to anything else. I am not a smoker nor do I have diabetes, etc. This was twenty years ago before osteoporosis raised it's an ugly head. It is caused by microcirculation so my toes are usually purple and cold all the time. I wear socks in the summer. The toes are becoming malformed and I have had major surgery for hammertoe of twenty years that got worst and, yes, had pins in my toes. But, it was worth it.
I had several operations on my foot years ago, and I feel it was worth it compared to the discomfort I felt prior to the surgeries.
I had developed hammer toes years ago, and they snipped the tendons that were pulling the toes taught. Now my toes are OK. With respect to pain, when the upper part of your toes touch your shoes, that is causing the pain. I felt no pain in sandals.
I also have terrible trouble with toes, can't sleep with pain in feet, I didn't know it was caused from osteoporosis.
