Hello, I have had regular discomfort and pain in my large toe for many years (approx 8-9 years) and in the early days i only really noticed it when i wore heals or bent my toe back whilst standing (i have not worn heals continuously for around 10 years). Over the last 4 months i have noticed that my toe is hurting even when sitting. It starts from the big toe and through the top of the foot (only in straight line from big toe) - i have no idea but i would say the tendon? Its only in the right toe. It is becoming stiffer and hurts when moved - a dull sort of pain rather than sharp one. There is no swelling.
Ordinarily, i would not question it but Mum has rheumatoid arthritis and it started in her feet, so just want to eliminate this. I do not have pain anywhere else. Of course, i will go to doctors but just wanted to know your thoughts. Thanks :)
