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.
