I never thought that this could happen, but alas...
Background: In my 15 years of competitive cycling, I never experienced any type of overuse injury from cycling. I ride mtn, road, cross, and sometimes commute, so I average 2-400 miles/ week.
The Issue: My problem is that I have a lump under my small toe's MPJ. This "lump" apparently is not painful during walking, but it feels like a bruise when I run and while riding- IT CAUSES TINGLING AND NUMBNESS IN BOTH FEET.
FACTS: It doesn't respond quickly to a decrease in riding volume and I've tried wedges, shims, and about six different pairs of shoes. My pedals are in excellent condition and I've tried new and old cleats and, my pedal cleat combination has not changed in over ten years. My fore/aft and saddle height are correctly set.
I've visited a PT and a podiatrist, but neither are cyclists so they are clueless about what might be causing this problem and clueless about how to fix it.
Prayer For Help: Has anyone experienced a similar problem? If so, how did you address/solve the problem?
