The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 17-year-old female asked:
Get it checked: A faint black vertical line or streak on a toenail can be a warning sign of a more serious condition. This needs to be evaluated because cancers of the nail can present themselves like this. A nail biopsy is the only way to determine this. Go get this checked. It is not always just a bruise.
A 41-year-old female asked:
Need a more info: Your symptoms are too vague to determine what could be wrong. I would suggest seeing a specialist so that a proper examination may be conducted. Although you have mentioned many issues that you are not experiencing, there are still several causes that could result in dorsal foot pain while walking.
A 35-year-old male asked:
It's connected: The bands of the plantar fascia extend into the ball of the foot, including the base of the 1st (big) toe. If your plantar fascia is inflamed, the pull at the insertion at the ball of the foot (near the big toe) will be irritated as well.
