It sounds like you are very angry and that is perfectly natural to feel that way when you have a disease like PD. But I hate to inform you that botox is a form of rat poison so you are taking drugs. It's okay that you have decided to not take the meds,but there is no need for you to be rude about it.

She does use a toe separater that eases the pain when it is placed properly between that big toe and the adjoining toe.

I am writing to tell you about Five FIngers shoes from Vibram. I started wearing them about 1.5 years ago and my toes rarely curl in them and they help alot with my balance because my foot feels in contact with the floor. These are the shoes with the seperate toe casings. I now have two pair and always wear them on the treadmill or around the house. I would get the single strap kind becsaue the all closed in ones are difficult to put on. The cheapest place to get them is on the Vibram website!
I had a botox injection in my foot and 4 in my leg about 2 months ago, but it didn't help my big toe at all.It did help my achilles tendon and my arch spasms. WIll try again, although the ones in the bottom of the foot are OW!!
I also was on gabapentin (Neurontin) fo a year at 300 mg, tid. It didn't help the curling, but is helpful with the pain. Now I just take 100mg evenings and AM when my toes hurt the most. I also take Mirapex and SInemet, but neither of those help my toe curling. It seems connected with concentrating on doing things, like typing this right now! ANy info out there?
