    So today was the last day I worked of a 7 in a row, 8 hour days that I had to bike to and from work (uphill the whole way for 20 minutes) and last night, I noticed my toe knuckle was hurting really bad. If I pull on it or try to crack it, it really hurts. Anyone know why? What it could be? Hyper extension? Bruise? Fucked it up while trying to crack it? Just standing on it lots causing it to hurt? (Lots of my other parts of body are sore and hurting too, but nothing painful like this).

    Dude, get to a doctor. That is a very common place for gout to start. Touch it and see if it's hot. If so then thats another sign that it could very likely be gout. Though it most likely is a pulled tendon or pinched nerve, I'd still get it checked out. Depending on what it is, giving it a quick precise pull (despite the pain) might alleviate it. Get better soon.

    I don't think its gout, I'm not over weight, don't eat many rich foods, and its not hot. And after giving it a pull, I realized pulling it doesn't hurt. Neither does squeezing it. It only hurts to, say, wiggle it left and right. Also, pushing it in hurts quite a bit. Walking doesn't hurt, but making a fist with my foot (lol wtf sorry about that explanation) hurts it. Maybe I dropped something on it at work and didn't realize and broke it? lol

    If making a foot-fist (lol) hurts, its a pulled tendon. Ice and keep it elevated. Should be fine in a week, If you don't see an improvement in a couple of days, get to a doctor.

    Thanks for the advice [​IMG]

    But its weird, I can't really replicate the pain. One thing hurts and another doesn't, then its the other way around. I'll stop touching it and see what happens haha

    aww poor science..
    yeah its prolly just sprained or pulled muscle
    maybe just give it some rest and try not to put pressure on it
    (maybe you can get a foot splint or toe splint)
