I've been buying various toe straighteners (www.footsmart.com
), but they don't really help much. The problem is the little toe loops (which return it to normal) are incredibly painful so you can only wear them maybe 20 minutes. Which isn't enough to return them totally normal. I am still wearing them daily, for 20 minutes. They are really cheap so it not like I am wasting money.
It definitely means it isn't controlled and you need more treatment. It has really effected my walking and balance, which is effecting my knees and hips.
Actema IV once a month (with pre loading for allergic reaction), Cymbalta x1 daily, Arava 20mg daily. Diagnosed with AS in 2004, suffered undiagnosed since 1982.
