Toe Pain: The treadmill is likely irritating the toe. There are many small ligaments and tendons in this region along with the joint capsule. I would lay off treadmill and seek alternative activity. There are many turf toe doing a available a long with taking an NSAID. If no improvement likely need an examination and possible xray.

Stop it.: Your solution is in your inquiry. Constant banging on the toe structures has started an inflammatory phenomena. Re-think your workout to minimize the previous activity before you damage the sesamoid complex.
