Hi about one week ago I noticed my toe nail turned a BRIGHT green almost neon, it was really light at first and thought I needed a polish change..However it then got brighter and brighter and I noticed my toe nail was loose. I went to the podiatrist, he looked at it and said there is no infection and really isn't sure what it is or why under the nail the toe bed completly detached and the sides of the nail is detertiating. he didn't want to take the nail out because it is still bedded into the cuticle part pretty good. However he did trim the nail. Last night my toe started to hurt and it even hurts worse today, a constant throbbing and stabbing pain. If I touch where my toe knuckle is the pain shoots down to the cuticle area and all around the toes and other toes hurt.. Has anyone has this before? My nail is now hollow detached under the nail.. I cant wear socks or normal shoes because of too much presure. also, along my cuticle area, thats turning a dark green/brown...

He said my nail should fall off in 6 weeks.... What gets me is he doesn't know why it's green and falling off and now the pain
