metatarsalgia

; M non-specific term denoting forefoot pain, in the metatarsal area (Table 1)
  • exercise-related metatarsalgia athletics-induced M, associated with pes cavus, forefoot equinus or a protracted propulsive phase of gait (compensatory foot movements cause forefoot overload, and resultant bone and soft-tissue stress)

  • greater metatarsalgia first-ray M

  • lesser metatarsalgia lesser-rays (2-5) M

Table 1: Presentations of metatarsalgia
Form of metatarsalgiaType/characteristics
Functional metatarsalgia (forefoot pain due to inherent local structural defect)• Unusual metatarsal formula
• Loss of normal forefoot joint mobility
• Local metatarsus equinus ± associated toe deformity (hammer, claw, retraction, trigger deformity)
• Iatrogenic change (e.g. hallux abductovalgus/foot surgery)
• Loss/atrophy of plantar fibrofat pad
• Rigid pes cavus
• Fixed plantarflexed ray
• Fixed-toe deformity
• Subluxation of a metatarsophalangeal joint
• Localized metatarsal equinus
• Generalized joint hypermobility
Non-functional metatarsalgia (forefoot pain due to forefoot, foot or limb pathology or systemic disease)Soft-tissue pathologies
• Focal plantar hyperkeratosis
• Connective tissue pathology, e.g. plantar fibromatosis, plantar plate rupture
• Synovial pathology, e.g. ganglion, adventitious bursitis, capsulitis, gouty tophus, rheumatoid bursae and nodules
• Vascular pathology, e.g. ischaemia, venous and lymphatic insufficiency
• Neurological problems, e.g. sensory dysfunction, nerve entrapment, Morton's neuroma/neuritis (see Table 2)

Patient discussion about m

Q. Dear friends, I am 90 or 85 pounds.Is it because I’m eating too much? Dear friends, I am 90 or 85 pounds and every one at my school always say that I’m skinny but it seems like my tummy is growing a lot faster than my body. Is it because I’m eating too much? Please help! I can cut down on eating, but do I need to???? (I am using my uncles’ user id)

A. I don’t think you need to stop eating Liam, to make yourself feel better, engage in a physical activity like walking, gym, cycling, shuttle, tennis etc. There was a time I thought I was fat then I stopped eating as much, now that I have lost 2stones in 1year everyone says how did you become anorexic.....I regret it badly and now its hard for me to gain that weight again!!!! I am only 16 and when I thought I was fat I believe that was puppy fat and myself, so may be your age matters too.

Q. Hi, I´m bleeding when I pee,suggestions? I´m 42 years old,and I had a lot of pain days ago just like before when I had a kidney stone and now I´m bleeding when I pee but I don´t know if could be a different problem

A. Thanks everybody, I´m taking care of the problem, all of you are very nice, God bless you.

Q. I’m Markel;one of my friends is suffering from depression. I’m Markel; one of my friends is suffering from depression. I forced him to consult a doctor but he refused to go. From his young age he hates meds. I would like to know the treatment mostly doctors prefer?

A. Hello Markell, most of the doctors prefer psychotherapy as the first treatment except in cases where depressive symptoms are so severe and immediate relief is necessary. Meds is usually the second choice, which doctors prefer after a comprehensive and competent trial of psychotherapy. Combined use of medications and psychotherapy is another treatment. Psychotherapy can be effective alternative to the use of medications. So explain this to your friend and take him to your local doctor.
