Have on and off again numbness in big toe since stubbing it this summer?

Have on and off again numbness in big toe since stubbing it this summer?

Trauma to nerve: When you stub your toe it is actually blunt force trauma to all the tissues in toe. The injury may not be bad enough to fracture bone but it can result in contusion-a 'deep bruise' to the soft tissues-skin muscle, tendon and nerves in the toe.

My big toe is red an numb and somewhat sore. Now my toenail is yellow and trying to fall off. What is wrong with it?

My big toe is red an numb and somewhat sore. Now my toenail is yellow and trying to fall off. What is wrong with it?

Onycholysis/mycosis: Your nail is coming loose because fungus in the toenail distorts the shape of the nail. The nail becomes loose and constantly moves with walking causing irritation and redness and infection. See a podiatrist for antibiotics and treatment options. Oral antifungals only have a 38% cure rate and topicals have less than a 10% cure rate. The nail can also be removed permanently by a podiatrist. ...Read more

You may need to see a neurologist or to have blood tests or an MRI scan to be sure there isn't anything going on that is concerning. There are a lot of less-common medical problems that can do this and you need assessment sooner that later. ...Read more
