I do martial arts and was sparring one day using kicks and felt pain as normal but it wasn't until the next day that I started to feel the sharpness of it. The next day I started feeling sharp pain in the base of my left big toe that comes and goes. At times I will be walking and then all of a sudden I feel sharp pain that briefly affects my walking and then it goes. I can move the toe normally but it seems to have a limited range of movement to before. It doesn't hurt to touch or manipulate and feels like the pain is nerval (if that's a word) or from the tendons. The pain feels like a nerve is being cut with a hacksaw but only for 2 or 3 seconds. I have a fight in 3 weeks and was wondering if you could recommend treatment to rehabilitate the injury as best I can before my fight. Thank you in advance for your help :)

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
