Why was this downvoted? It is correct, right? Personally, I find it very useful when people post the answer with the kanji...

Is it okay to have "左の足"? Is there a rough rule for working out when possessives are required for hidari and migi (e.g.: "it's never required, you idiot!")?

When you want to be specific, but if the topic is clear, like you're lifting up your left leg, then hidariashi 左足 suffices

Sorry to vent, but I dislike trying to guess when they want kanji or hiragana... I wish they'd accept both. For me, it gets marked as wrong when I use kanji duo has taught me yet. Which I understand, but I can never remember if I've "learned" it in duo yet or if I only know it due to wanikani or other study haha.

Remember here that the kanji for leg is 脚 and the kanji for foot is 足. Unless 足 can be used for both, in which case I am stupid.

Edit: I am stupid.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news about 足 being used for both...

左の足はいたくないです  Not accepted?

It should be accepted. Totally natural, although I myself usually do not put の after 右 or 左 before noun.

Why is は used here, while other sentences like "My head hurts" uses が ?

Both would generally be correct. Although there are a few phrases that use "ga" more often, and I think "atama" is one of them. (Atama ga ii, atama ga itai, sei ga takai, sei ga hikui, as some examples). I'm not sure if there's a rule other than learning these set phrases.
