In brief: Exam is essential.

Clawing toes can bring about symptoms much like those you describe.
Certainly big toe pain can cause you to shift the weight to the outside of your foot. This type of compensation can lead to knee pain. I am afraid that not much can be done until you have been seen in a hands on theater. You might push your referring doctor for an earlier exam date to avoid further complications.

In brief: Foot pain

There are many reasons why you could be having foot pain.
Some reasons could include fibroma, foreign body, fracture and tendonitis. A neuroma can cause a "marble-like" feeling upon weight bearing. Many patients have had the same symptoms even with hammertoes and bunions. Get it looked by a Podiatrist in person or virtually for a definitive diagnosis and treatment plan.
