Leg toe pain?

More info

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
There are many reasons one can have leg and toe pain. Without information on quality of pain, time present, what makes it better/worse, how'd it start (all at once, due to injury, gradually), there is no great answer.

Little toe pain?

Location of pain

Corn_alergy
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.

What are claw toes?

Contracted Toes

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
A claw toe is when the toes #2,3,4 or 5 are plantar flexed. Which means contracted towards the floor. A claw toe is a hammertoe and a mallet toe combined. A hammertoe is a bend in the toe at the 1st joint in the toe, when the second joint (the one near the toenail) is also bent (the mallet part) it is known as a claw toe. An Internet search for clawtoe diagram, will make it clear.
