Big Toe Pain -- feels like it needs to be popped/cracked

Hi,

The other day, all of a sudden my big toe started to hurt -- in the ball of my food in the joint area. And whenever I touched it, it had the feeling like it needed to be popped/cracked.

If I recall, the other day, my big toe caught on a blanket that was laying on the floor.

Did I pop my toe out of socket/joint?

I know its not a bunion, because I don't wear high heels (I'm a work at home mom - where I don't need to dress up ;) ), and my shoes are correctly fitted.

It hurts to walk, and I have to walk on the side of my foot to compromise the pain.

Do you think I should go to the Dr. and get it checked out?

Thanks!
