Middle toe on 1 foot is swollen and hurts when I curl it (feels like a rock is under it). When unbent feels fine, all other toes are fine. No trauma?

Possible tendonitis: You may have a flexor tendonitis. If there are no color or temperature changes to the toe: ice it for about 10 minutes 3 times a day.

Icing will reduce inflammation and help with pain. ...Read more
