The second joint on my second toe hurts so bad when it's touched.It doesnt 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. ...Read more

Can plantar fasciitis cause toe pain on top of my foot? Mainly if I'm going upstairs. It's in like the first joints.

Can plantar fasciitis cause toe pain on top of my foot? Mainly if I'm going upstairs. It's in like the first joints.

Probably not: Plantar fasciitis is mainly an issue with the arch and heel on the bottom of the foot also called the plantar surface of the foot. This may be another issue such as hallux rigidus (arthritis of the great toe joint), sesamoiditis. I would recommend you see a local podiatrist who can examine your foot and give you a better assessment of the problem. ...Read more

Banged 2nd toe into a rock barefoot.Toe swollen, bruised at top joint of toe, pain when bend forward, can't bend back difficulty walking.

Banged 2nd toe into a rock barefoot.Toe swollen, bruised at top joint of toe, pain when bend forward, can't bend back difficulty walking.

The only thing I can: Add to dr. Bernstein's excellent answer is don't keep taking Ibuprofen or aleve, (naproxen) since, if it is fractured, oral anti-inflammatories will delay fracture healing. I think it's important to get it x-rayed, so call a toe truck and bring your little piggy to a foot doctor asap. Feel better and good luck! ...Read more
