    Congenital Hand Anomalies

    3
    Hey everyone,My youngest son was born what a congenital hand anomaly on his left hand. He doesn't have any digits, but he has a thumb which is very fortunate. I came here for support and new information about this condition. I've been to Shriner's Hospital, but they said there is nothing they can do other than remove his nubums. I didn't think it was right for me to have them removed, because...

    Small Hands & Feet

    8
    I am a man with really small hands and feet.It's embarrassing when I have to shake hands with men and women who have normal size hands.Most people have hands about twice the size of mine, fingers nearly twice as long.I can type and do other things just like anyone else, so it's only in appearance that I feel freakish.Anyone else here like this?

    Dry hand problem

    I don't know if this is the right forum. I couldn't find anything for dry skin conditions, so I guessed and went here because it's a dry skin condition on my hands and wrists. So, first off, if you know a forum that'll help me, please direct me there.So, every winter I have this terrible skin condition on my hands and wrists. It starts with the skin becoming dry, then it cracks into tiny...
  • I am in my early 30s and in September of 2013 I was doing a lot of walking on uneven roadat which point I felt a snap in my big left toe. The snap/pain was most apparent on the right side of the toe. Within about 5-10 minutes the right side/a good portion of the big toe went numb.The next day, I could start to feel the toe but it was numb on/off for about a week. Ever since this has occurred...

    Club foot anyone?

    8
    I am 40 years old with a club foot. At the time I was born, I had so many other problems that they pretty much just left my foot alone. I have spent my whole life hiding my ugly foot. It has prevented me from a lot of things like swimming, wearing flip flops, etc... I saw another post on here where a lady was pregnant and thought her baby had club feet but these posts were over a year ago. I am...

    What is this thing on my foot?

    0
    Hi everyone! Im not exactly sure if this is even appropriate on this board, but I have to try. I have had this very painful bump on my foot for the past few months. It hurts so bad if I accidentally step on it(its almost right in the middle of the top of my foot) I will fall flat to the ground from the pain. Because of where it is at I have to shift my weight to the outside of my foot, so Im...

    Those can't be my feet!

    I was born literally with my feet on backwards. I suffered for I've years as they were slowly moved into place. I had chronic breaks and was pulled out of all athletics as a kid. I was the strange one. Now looking back and looking at what I am working with, I wish I had been amputated..I admit that sounds harsh but to live life without fear of breaking would be amazing. I recently snapped my...

    Heel Abnormality, Flat feet, Weak ankles & kne

    1
    Hello everyone. I'm a 23 year old guy, very active (ice hockey, rock climbing, swimming, and a ton of volunteering). I recently went to the podiatrist because the pain I've felt in my feet since I was a kid has increased. He felt my feet and watched me walk, and noted that I have two out-turned feet and weak ankles with extreme flexibility. But when he felt my heels, he discovered why. He...
