    I am overweight and flat-footed. For the past 12 years, I have been suffering with a tightness and curling under of my toes that happens only when I'm walking. I've been to a couple podiatrists, but all they said it might could be is PTTD or tarsal tunnel syndrome. I'm doubtful that it is that, because when the dr tapped on the area under my ankle, I didn't feel that nerve pain. I just came across some information on hammertoe the other day and I wonder if I could have that. I looked at google images, and their feet seemed to be stuck in that position constantly. I can move my toes; they are flexible, but I do feel a little tightness, just hardly noticeable in the ball of my foot which could be related to the problem with the toes. This is terrible, and threatening to ruin my health because I cannot get outside or on a treadmill to walk or run my excess weight off! And I cannot go into places like stores. I walk so slowly. Please, if anybody suffers with this, or can relate, or might have an idea what I'm dealing with, please let me know.
