(Question asked by Diana Birdwell)
About 4 or so months ago I stubbed my right big toe into something, it hurt like heck for a bit,there was only pain and maybe some slight red or pinkish color to it. And then 6-8 weeks later I stubbed it again. This was about 4 months ago when the initial took place. Every once in a while it gets stiff and I can barely walk on my foot, my toe being so stiff or achy or painful.
To this day I have noticed that there is a slight redness about an inch or half an inch below my toe nail, and it streaks down a little ways. Its a faint discoloration. I think I had this toe checked out and xrayed and was told that it was just a sprain. Why am I seeing the redness on my big toe? It has been months since the injuries.
Is it possible there is something else going on with it. I don’t think there is, its not bothering me, it s once in a while it gets stiff or painful to walk on. Was the sprain diagnosis accurate? I had jammed into something pretty good. Can arthritis in my big toe, when it flares up, show up on an X-ray?
