Why do the sides of my big toes hurt when i run?

Why do the sides of my big toes hurt when i run?

Side of big toe hurt: The side of the big toe (hallux) hurts when one runs when the toe grips the ground during the running cycle. The hallux does this before propulsion (next phase of the gait cycle). As it grips the ground, the medial side of the toe usually abuts the ground, sustaining friction. As this occurs repeatedly, the medial side of the toe would hurt and/or develop a callus (aka pinch callus) or blister. ...Read more

My big toes hurt@night,,the outside of big toes,are red and a little more dry looking than the rest, also my pinky's toes. Ache on outside of my feet?

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 more

I have severe toe pain not my big toe it hurts when sitting and if you touch it or rub it wrong it's been going on for awhile?

Many things: Unfortunately, without a better description this could be many things. But classically things doctors think of that cause toe pain, are fractures(if you traumatized it) or gout/pseudogout(crystal problems that affect joints), even infections or non-infectious inflammation(like synovitis). You will get better answers if you are able to provide a bit more info. Best of luck. ...Read more

Big toe pain where the nail meets the skin hurts on the side hurts if anything touches it like wearing a sneaker or sock doesn't feel like a hang nail?

Ingrown toenail: Unfortunately it sounds like an ingrown toenail. Look for redness, warmth, pain and drainage. If their is drainage, what color is it? You should see a foot and ankle specialist and remove the offending nail border. ...Read more

Should i take my son to the doctors? Two days ago my 20month old son got his toes hurt bad we took him to the ER and he had a procedure called repair nail bed foot on two toes on his right foot he now has to wear a cast going up his whole leg and foot but

Should i take my son to the doctors? Two days ago my 20month old son got his toes hurt bad we took him to the ER and he had a procedure called repair nail bed foot on two toes on his right foot he now has to wear a cast going up his whole leg and foot but

It : It sounds like he had some sort of procedure for a toenail on 2 toes, if i'm reading your question correctly (help us help you by using punctuation). If this is correct, bleeding is normal, and they should have warned you about it. But now, at 2 days, there shouldn't be any new blood. If he's currently bleeding, then my answer is yes, take him back to the er. If it's old, dry blood on the bandage, there is no need to panic. But i assume you have a follow-up appointment to check on this in the next few days, right? ...Read more

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 more

My toes hurt sometimes. When i take an ivprofen the pain goes away. Any suggestions?

The good news is: You figured out to get rid of the pain. So, something is wrong. Which toe? Did you injure it? Is it swollen or red? When does it hurt? Does it hurt both in and out of shoes? The suggestion would be to see a podiatrist and let them take x-rays for starters. ...Read more

Tip of big toe pain, could this be deadly?

Big toe pain: Could this be deadly? Not likely. Melanoma or some other tumor could be deadly but this is very remote. It is most commonly a enchondroma (a bump on the bone under the nail). The is easily removed by your local podiatrist. You can try to change shoes and or pad the area and see if this takes pressure off the area. A x ray will often show if this is the likely cause of your pain. ...Read more
