Sore toes: If there is no evidence of inflammation of the toes(redness,swelling),the sensitivity may be due to rather rapid raising of circulating blood after 3 units of blood were transfused. However this would be an unusual reaction. If painful or tender digits persist or worsen, or if signs of inflammation appear, consult your physician for evaluation.
