From Cute Feet To Deformed In 1 Year...

In the summer of 2011 I noticed that the big toe on my right foot was angling towards the other toes. Soon a bump grew at the base on my big toe. By Christmas the bunion was huge. I wear toe spacers during the day, soak my feet in Epsom salts and use YogaToes often. I have never worn high heels- NEVER. I spend most of my time barefoot or in sneakers. But I have worn flip-flops often, I have heard those can cause bunions too. I am not really sure exactly what caused it though. I do not have health insurance, and since the bunion is non-painful, I have never seen a doctor about it. Finding shoes that fit is a problem. The shoes need to have a wide enough toe-box and yet also fit the rest of my foot. The bump isn't getting bigger now but I fear the toe is moving more and more towards the other toes. I hate it! Maybe one day I can have surgery.
