Unexplained Bruising of Big Toe
I hope someone can give me ideas as to what might be happening to my toe. We moved into an older home a few weeks ago. I've been walking around the house barefoot and twice now have thought I stepped on something with one of my big toes. I haven't been able to find anything either time. Each time after the initial feeling of stepping on something like a pebble, I feel stinging, then swelling on the underside of my toe. A few hours later the back of my toe and both sides of it are bruised, as in purple/gray. It doesn't hurt anymore once all of this happens. While it's swollen sometimes it feels like I still have something stuck to the underside of my toe when I'm walking.
I've tried researching this on the internet, but haven't had much luck since I don't really know how to explain it for a Google search. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is happening to my toe?
