Sorry, I'm not quite sure on the spelling but I think I might have arthiritis in my toe. My mother says it's possible just to get it in one joint but it only usually occurs after an injury or illness.

Basically, recently I have taken up excercise classes in order to get fit, however I have found that after running or doing an aerobic work out, my big toe aches. Now I'm aware that this could just be because I'm not used to doing a lot of excercise, but this has happened before. During my school days I'd often get a pain in my big toe after doing athletics. I also used to play football and found that my toe would ache after that.

I often wear high heeled shoes and have never had any problems, however I've noticed that if I wear them for long periods of time, again, on ocassion my big toe aches when I take them off.

I only notice the pain if I am actually doing a lot of physical movement. Normal walking doesn't seem to trigger it. Oddly, it is only ever in that one big toe which is what makes me think it may be something to do with my joint.

Can anyone confirm my suspicions?
