Little Toes Hurt In The Morning
I woke up this morning and all of my toes hurt when i bend them down. Its getting better, but 12hrs later they're still stiff. Whats causing this?
Several things!: Could be activity related-what did you the day or two before. Are shoes supportive and good fit. If the pain does last for more than a few days, it may represent arthritis. Many types affect the toes and mtps. See your doctor if it lasts. Temporary benefits may be had from aleve (naproxen) or motrin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Different toe Box.: So let me see. The outside of the big toes and the outside of the little toes, both hurt and are a little red. The first place I would be looking for a cause is your shoes. The areas in question are the areas that that receive the most pressure from shoes that are not fitting your foot right. Red dry looking and aching are the warning signs of ingrown toenails, or at least inflamed nail borders. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Location of pain: Would be helpful. Often, if on the outside it is caused by a hammertoe, which will leave you with a corn or little area of inflammation known as a bursitis. If on the inside, you can have a soft corn caused by the 5th toe rubbing against the 4th. If you banged it in the middle of the night going to the bathroom you may have fractured it. A foot doc can help no matter the cause. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
