I am looking for some advice or some similar stories, so I can try and make sense of what is happening to my body.
I was born with positional club foot, basically my feet were stuck in my mother’s rib cage and ended up distorted to the point my big toe was pointing upwards and touching my leg. I was born in 1991. I had surgery at 6 weeks old and boots with the metal bar across, physiotherapy and a further 2 operations. You would never have guessed I had club feet. I now have a size 3 left foot and a size 5 right foot as I believe the surgeon removed some bone in the left foot.
My left leg is twisted, when I put my knee straight my foot turns inwards.
Approximately 4 months ago I had a lump appear on my Achilles‘ tendon on my right ankle, I suspect an injury of some sort however I’ve not done anything to it but I’ve always had very ‘tight’ Achilles’ tendons. All of a sudden last week I have had extremely bad pain in my left hip and lower back, at first I thought it was sciatica but it is not travelling down my legs at all and it feels weird like an actual joint pain. I Briefly remember my orthopaedic doctor telling me I would have problems later in life but can not remember exactly.
My parents are not very good and they’ve never really explained everything to me and gp’s seem to dismiss my concerns about the pain being somewhat related.
I suppose I’m just looking for anyone that has experienced anything similar and can maybe shed some light on what is eventually going to happen to me? I’m scared that this is it now and I’m forever going to have issues.
