Need advice on Big Toe Pain. Please HELP

I need some advice!!! I was training for a marathon and after my 16 mile run my big toe turned black and blue. After limping for about a week due to an extermly painful toe I went to the Dr. Within 30 secs of the appointment he told me that a sub-hematoma and that the toenail needs to be removed. He told me I could go running within a day or 2 of having the nail removed. Well..... once he started injecting the local block, I started to screem in pain. He said that was not normal and decied that I might also have another problem and stoped. He took X-rays while my toe was half numb.

Well.. the x-rays came back negative and he contiued with the toenail removal. I felt the entire thing and was in alot of pain!!!!!!!!

I went home and imedataly started vomiting and was in extreme pain. The next day I called the Dr again and he said that was normal.

It has now been 2 weeks since the toenail removal and I am in as much pain as before plus I had to give up training for the marathon in 4 weeks from today.
The labs for infection all came back normal!

The Dr has says he has never seen this problem and can't give me a diagnosis.

Anyone else had this problem!. My toe hurts in the joint below the nail and is slightly swollen due to the nail removal.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
