Go ahead and laugh it up !
I don't know how it started, but a couple of days ago I got this really bad throbbing pain on my great toe. It swells and is hot to the touch and it really hurts!! It feels like someone dropped a bowling ball on it.
The weird part about it is that it just came out of the blue and it only seems to hurt really bad when I lay down. I noticed the pain stops when I take my sock off and keep my foot below heart level. The cool air is soothing also.
I didn't get bitten by any bugs and I didn't hurt my toe, so I'm wondering what it could be....any thougths??
