Foot injury

im quite athletic and my hobbies are running to keep fit. few months ago, i got a injury. this is under my foot near the bone of my big toe. so if i bend to walk its uncomfortable, iv put up with this but its not repairing itself, as i know injuries heal after few weeks.( iv had a lot in the past)
it seems to be getting worse when it should be healing after so long. lately im having shooting pains coming and going. please give me some idea what this can be?

    Hello and thank you for the question. Not all foot injuries heal quickly due to the constant pressure and stress we place on the feet when walking and standing.

    Any injury to the big toe is even more difficult to heal as we can re-irritate the tissue every time we push off. If you have not seen a Podiatrist yet, I would recommend seeing one. They will be able to take an x-ray and better examine your foot to determine if it is a soft tissue injury or possibly something with the bones.

    Good luck!
