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