sharp stabbing pain under big toe

the other day I was walking down stairs and all of a sudden my big toe hurt terrible....it felt like I stepped on a needle. I looked at my toe and couldn't find anything stuck in it, but it's very tender and almost feels numb/tingly when I rub it underneath. I think it's some kind of nerve pain. I looked up a couple things and am wondering if it's mortons neuroma?
Any ideas what this could be?

Re: sharp stabbing pain under big toe

Neuromas are not typically under the big toe, but rather between toes. It could be any number of things though - sesamoiditis, arthritis in the big toe, gout, etc. If it continues to bother you, I suggest seeing a sports med ortho who does feet.

Re: sharp stabbing pain under big toe

thanks for your response, I'll look up some of your ideas....
also forgot to mention, it seems like it's underneath a callous, if that makes any difference.
