bunion left foot
A bunion is a common foot condition that can occur on either foot, but it's more common to occur on the left foot. A bunion is characterized by a bony bump on the inside of the foot at the base of the big toe. The bump is formed by the head of the first metatarsal bone (the bone that connects to the big toe) protruding out of place. This misalignment causes the big toe to angle towards the other toes, and the joint becomes enlarged and inflamed. The bump may be red, swollen, and painful to the touch.
Symptoms of bunion on the left foot may include:
- Pain and discomfort when wearing shoes
- Redness, swelling, and inflammation around the bunion
- Difficulty walking or standing for long periods of time
- A feeling of tightness or crowding in the toe area
- Calluses or corns developing on the bunion or adjacent toes
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it's recommended to consult a doctor or podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
