Sharp, intense, needle stabbing, burning pain in tip of left toe.  What couuld be possible causes?

MANY things.: Generally when someone describes their pain the way you did, it's some type of nerve irritation. A small nerve may be running over a bony prominence and be irritated by your shoe gear, or may be caught up in other tissue. See a podiatrist for a more detailed exam and diagnosis. Treatment may be very simple! ...Read more

Big toe pain: This sounds like a enchondroma. This is a bump of bone and they can grow under the nail and hurt with any pressure at all. An ingrown toe nail can hurt at the tip of the toe but you would be able to see this yourself. Your podiatrist can help you with this. ...Read more

Granuloma Pyogrnicum: Sounds like you may not have the complete picture. Exuberant granulation is caused by chronic foreign body tissue reaction whereby chemotaxis of inflammatory infiltrate and leukocyte cells macrophages etc cause angioneogenesis in an attempt to encircle an ingrowing nail or thorn or other material. This in turns forms excess tissue growth which may in turn epithelialize when rejected foreign body. ...Read more

I have a have a sharp needle like pain on the tip of my big toe. I went to the doctor and he used a silver nitrate stick on it. It still hurts.

Toe pain: Do you have anything else other than the pain? It is not clear from your post as to why silver nitrate was used. It's not used for pain. You do need an exam of your toe because without it, it's essentially impossible to arrive to a correct diagnosis. ...Read more
