There can be several causes of toe pain. One common factor includes wearing shoes that do not fit correctly. Additionally, bunions, broken toes, and ingrown toenails can cause difficulty in completing daily activities due to the discomfort they create. Pain and a tingling sensation can be indicative of a condition that is known as Raynaud’s syndrome, and can happen when cold or stressed. Gout can cause extreme pain, and generally affects the big toe. If a heavy object falls on the foot, it may result in a broken toe. Symptoms of this can include bruising, swelling, and it is often difficult to walk. If you have toe pain, it is strongly suggested that you speak with a podiatrist who can determine the cause of toe pain, and offer correct treatment options.
