Many possibilities: Your pain could be as a result of many different things. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis), infection (ingrown nail), metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy). A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause.
