:confused: Well I guess I'll start out by saying that my New Years resolution was to eat healthier and work out more. So on the Monday after New Years I joined a gym and started walking on the treadmill every day for 4 miles it took me about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
After the second day I noticed that both my big toes were kinda sore. Then on the third day after coming home from the gym I could'nt get my shoes off fast enough because of the pain and both my big toenails were blue and very painful.
My Mom said she thought it could be gout so I went online and researched it and there were several foods that I could eat to relieve my symptoms, it also said to soak my feet in vinegar and hot water every day. I have been doing this for almost a week and there has been no relief actually now both my big toenails seem to be coming off. They are still painfull so I have been only going to the gym every other day and only walking for 3 miles.
If anyone has any ideas what this could be or has symptoms like this I would greatly appriciate some help. One more thing after soaking my feet for almost a week where my toenails are trying to come off, they are black underneath the nails.

PLEASE HELP:confused:

  • :) Well just a small update on my condition....there were blisters under my toenails and they busted and clear liquid came out...like when you bust a blister on your skin. After the liquid came out my toenails turned turned back to their original color and the pain was gone.:) However now my toenails were just hanging by barely nothing....so I clipped them off...with no pain. So now I have no big toenails...but I also have no pain either:D Hopefully my toenails will grow back normaly!

  • Your issue made me think of a time when i did a 100km fund raising marathon back when i was well. When i got to the end of it after 48hrs .. i had blisters all over my feet (blisters upon blisters).. and my toe nails were blue (actually my whole toes were). I ended up loosing at least one toe nail (i actually thought I was going to possibly loose a toe at one point). My issue was caused by the pressure of the shoes (they did fit right but I dont know if it was the distance I exercised with them or the fact that they got all wet. Make sure your shoes are fitting good.

I'm suffering from it now.... Stop running on it, and your toenail will fall off, but there is a new one growing in. Don't worry about it. Just make sure you ice, elevate, and rest it. Good luck :)
