Help, Big Toe Pain

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello I"ve got big toe pain from 2 weeks and want to know what do with the pain. The pain first was in the middle of foot (2nd,3rd and 4th toe) and i went to orthopaedist and said I should i give it a rest, gave some anti-inflammatory pills. Then the pain relievd but i started feeling pain in the big toe (top the toe). I feel the pain mostly when i try to lift my toe upwards. I think this injuries are cause of playing on hard surfaces (i play football/soccer). Do you have any suggestions on what to do because i really want to train now when season started and would i worsen it if i run.

                                                                     Thank you smile

    You might need special insoles to support your for/foot. Best ask gp for a referal to podiatrist, I got insoles and that sorted my big toe pain

      I asked him for or orthopedic insoles for the previous pain and now for the big toe but he said that it isnt necessesary. He said it may be inflamation of the tendon. Although i can run but I feel discomfort on my foot and do you think I should train/run because I want to train to be on condition and play, but at the same time I want to releive my pain ASAP. Thank you very much for the help !

      Hi Daniel. In my experience the pain was excruciating and neither heat or cold made any difference. Nothing worked until I was referred to a podiatrist and was given insoles. After a couple of weeks the pain seriously reduced and I was able to do everything that I could before the pain started. Your pain will obviously increase if you keep training. Maybe ask for a referral to a podiatrist and ease off on the training until you get an appointment so that you don't do any further injury.
