Yes, you read the headline correctly.
As odd as it may seem, there are doctors who believe that having a long second toe maybe linked to fibromyaliga.
According to Dr. Dudley J. Morton, a longer second toe can cause the foot to incorrectly absorb shock when it hits the ground.
She explains that Myofascial Pain Syndrome is a condition that causes pain in the body away from the source of the stressed muscles, which could be the long second toe.
Honestly, this seems wierd to me.
Looking at my feet, I do have a long second toe…
But I find it really hard to believe that this toe receives so much stress that it causes me tremendous pain throughout my body.
So, I’d like to hear from other fellow fibro sufferers and have a little experiment to find out if having a long second toe could be a cause of fibromyalgia.
