I'm glad to see others sharing this unusual problem. My doctor seemed to think me a little strange when I told him about it and I was a little hesitant to share it. He kept asking to see my toe but I told him there was nothing on the outside, it was deep inside where you can't reach it. Anyway, he said it sounded like it could be a disc problem, possibly in the L5 region. I had back surgery 10 years ago in that area and had a fractured disc that was partially removed. I don't know if this is it, but it could make sense. It is nerve pain apparently. He suggested sitting in a straight back chair and bending over as far as I could to stretch the back. Haven't found the cure yet.
