I am reading online that pain in the foots big toe only can mean a heart attack. Is this true in most cases when there are no other symtoms?

In brief: I can't imagine

where you are reading that toe pain is related to heart attack but it doesn't make any sense physiologically.
Some one is literally pulling your leg.

Agree. These websites are by crooks to bash doctors, get your trust, and sell you junk.

In brief: Not toemain either..

Pain in the big toe can mean a whole lot of things, but sorry to say, a heart attack is not one of them.
