A bunion is a deformity at the base of the big toe. If you have a bunion, wearing tight or poorly fitted shoes will make it worse. Try changing your footwear to shoes, trainers or slipper that fit well and are roomy.
If you have congestive heart failure, it means that your heart is not working as well as it should. It can cause fluid retention, breathlessness, and tiredness. It can be treated with lifestyle changes and medication.
