I had fusion on my second toe with wires, had them removed on Tuesday and have had pain since I no its only two days after but realy swollen?

Should: Not really be that painful. I assume the pin was removed after several weeks. By now the healing process should have been well underway. Some pain and swelling is deemed normal, but severe pain not normal. See the surgeon for it. Try to rest and elevate your foot as much as possible.

Depends: Since you injured it, you really need an x-ray to determine if it is broken. Then a healing time can be predicted.

I have pain in the base and a sharp pain at the tip of the second toe. The pain has moved to the base of the third and fourth toe. I did not have any injury. It feels like its swollen, but is not. It feels like a wrinkle. What should I do?

Possible neuroma: The symptoms you describe are consistent with a neuroma, which is a benign nerve tumor affecting the nerves going to the toes. The pain is worse while walking barefoot on a hard surface or when enclosed in shoes. Steroid injections and/or surgery are the treatments available.

Foot swelling: Hi, I suggest that you see a doctor for evaluation, there is a possibility that you might have Gout if there is no history of trauma to the toe. Also infection is another possibility. See a doctor ASAP.

My second toe on the inside and on top between the third toe is swollen and my toes are numb?

Varies: A lot of potential causes, I would not hesitate being seen. Was there an injury? Common causes can include inflammatory conditions, conditions associated with a subtle deformity, a neuroma, stress injuries/fractures. A detailed exam and X-ray would go a long way in making the correct diagnosis.

My second toe on my left foot has been swollen and red for the last week. It hurts to the touch and is painful to just leave it be.

See a podiatrist.: Redness and swelling could be from trauma or fracture (did you stub it?), from painful arthritic conditions like gout, or from an infection. See your podiatrist to narrow down your possibilities and discuss individualized treatment.

Joint @ base of my second toe on top of my foot (not the ball) is swollen. Started w/mild discomfort when I curled my toes. Now painful and swollen.

See Podiatrist: Any warmth, tenderness, red or purple coloration, or limited range of motion? Any trauma? Don't know your age or past history? A podiatrist is likely to be able to accurately diagnose the cause of these symptoms.

I am having pain on my foot where my second toe on my right foot connects to my foot. Swollen also! I have been to the doc already should I go again?

I am having pain on my foot where my second toe on my right foot connects to my foot. Swollen also! I have been to the doc already should I go again?

Yes: In addition to dr. Schnur's comment, pain at that particular joint can also be associated with pre-dislocation syndrome, or damage to the joint from overload/overuse. Untreated this will lead to joint instabliity and dislocation. Another specific cause is an injury called avascular necrosis (freibergs infraction.) it is imporant to get a correct diagnosis and treatment to avoid future problems.

Arthritis: Was there ever an injury sustained? What does the toe look like? The second toe has 3 bones and 2 joints. This means 2 areas can sustain arthritis. The toe can swell from an arthritic flair.

The second joint on my second toe hurts so bad when it's touched. It doesn't look red or swollen but cant bend all the way. Run regularly but no trauma.

Painful toe: Joggers sometimes get 'stress' fractures (though they are relatively longer bones of the foot). Get an X-ray. Other possibility includes tendinitis. If X-ray shows no fracture, try anti inflammatory medicine (600-800 mg Ibuprofen 3 times a ay with food) for a few days. If response is not satisfactory, see your physician.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor, especially if you are a diabetic or have peripheral vascular disease.

Ganglionic cyst: I agree that you may have a cyst. Seek a foot specialist for the proper evaluation you may need to have it drained and aspirated or removed.
