SESAMOIDITIS

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

The sesamoid bones are subject to breakage (fracture) as well as sesamoiditis. Sometimes, it can be difficult to tell the difference between the two conditions.

Pain will occur nearly immediately when a person fractures a sesamoid bone, but a person with sesamoiditis will experience pain gradually.

Other symptoms of sesamoiditis include:

  • bruising
  • problems straightening or bending the big toe
  • swelling
  • pain, particularly on the bottom of the foot
