Mum who thought she had winter flu symptoms is forced to have her toes amputated
Flat feet - Wikipedia
Flat feet also called pes planus or fallen arches is a postural deformity in which the arches of the foot collapse, with the entire sole of the foot coming into complete or near-complete contact with the ground. There is a functional relationship between the structure of the arch of the foot and the biomechanics of the lower leg. The arch provides an elastic, springy connection between the forefoot and the hind foot so that a majority of the forces incurred during weight bearing of the foot can be dissipated before the force reaches the long bones of the leg and thigh. In pes planus, the head of the talus bone is displaced medially and distal from the navicular bone. As a result, the Plantar calcaneonavicular ligament spring ligament and the tendon of the tibialis posterior muscle are stretched, so much so that the individual with pes planus loses the function of the medial longitudinal arch MLA. This latter condition is often treated with arch supports. Three studies see citations below in Military performance section of military recruits have shown no evidence of later increased injury, or foot problems, due to flat feet, in a population of people who reach military service age without prior foot problems.

A mum who thought she had the winter flu ended up having her feet partly amputated after her toes turned back with sepsis. Ruth Kent, 53, started shivering and aching for a few days last November, but dismissed this is as nothing more than a common cold or the flu. But when Ruth woke up one night to find she had lost bowel control - she knew something was wrong.
