Back in February of last year I fell of a ladder and landed on my big toe. Apparently I fractured it and didn't know it - thought it was just sprained. When I went to see the doctor he said the fracture healed (fracture on the cunieform bone) but I had a fragment loose and I can have surgery to remove it if I wanted. So of course I did since I was in pain. So he did the surgery and found that there were 2 fragments floating around. So okay that was back in October and it is now the end of February and I am still in pain. He said it should take four months to heal. So now after four months after the surgery I felt good so I started to run and apparently that was a bad idea. So, I went back to the doctor for toe pain last month and he said I have capsulities in the big toe. So okay he gave me Reflan for a month and no running and that seemed to work until a week before I finished the medicine. So I am going back again on March 2 to see what is really wrong. I work in retail so I am constantly on my feet everyday so this has been really hard. Especially for a Management position.

Here are my symptoms if someone can give me some clue to help me out a little - He said I might have arthritis so maybe that is all I am feeling but it doesn't feel like that. I have no swelling so that is why it is so hard for me to fiqure out what is wrong. I have stabbing pain in my toe joint area with a achy feeling and when I stand on it, sometimes it will give out on me. Please help.
