The thumb digits on the leg

Pain in the toes can be observed in a variety of diseases:

The pain localized in the toes can occur with various diseases:

For various arthritis, a characteristicinflammatory rhythm of pain (usually 3-4 hours, at night), nevertheless, each arthritis has its own "favorite" fingers. For psoriatic and reactive arthritis, as well as for gout (more common in men), the most common pain in the big toe. Other toes can inflame (in different combinations and variants) with psoriatic arthritis (less often), or with rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis, affecting the big toe, often invernacular is called gout, nevertheless, nothing to do with gout does not have this disease. Despite the fact that with a real gout the big toe is affected by the disease most often, cases of gout are rare. Gout is most common in men, and arthrosis of the big toe is for women. The cause of arthrosis in women is the prolonged wearing of shoes with a narrow toe. Bone, sticking out because of the deviation of the foot, is subjected to excessive traumatization (due to rubbing with shoes) and, gradually, deformed. In the future, the entire joint is subjected to deformation, becoming much wider than it should be. The motor capabilities of the deformed joint are significantly reduced. If you do not take any measures - the finger is fixed in the wrong position and return it to its normal position - almost impossible. Also, friction causes bursitis (inflammation of the periarticular bag): the joint turns red and swollen, painful sensations appear at any, even the most insignificant, touch. In addition, the thumb presses the other toes of the foot, "pushing" the second and third finger, as a result, the entire foot is deformed and to combat these consequences, applying therapeutic methods is very difficult.

Acquisition of a white shade with the toes(some or all at once), sometimes accompanied by pain in the fingers, and especially as a result of physical exertion (running, walking, overcoming stairs, etc.), or under hypothermia, often speaks of a disease of the blood vessels, and, to be more precise, arteries of the feet.

The risk factors include belonging to the male sex, age exceeding 30 years, the presence of diabetes, smoking.

The main diseases, which are characterized bythis symptomatology is the obliterating endarteritis and arteriosclerosis of the arteries located in the lower limbs. Both diseases are characterized by violations of the arterial blood flow, which results in inadequate delivery of nutrients and oxygen in the tissue.

These diseases are often accompanied by painfulsensations in the legs (or in one leg), localized in the feet, shins, fingers and so on. Depending on how much the vessels are clogged, there may be changes in the skin (dryness, pallor), and also in the nails (striation, brittleness). In addition, hair loss on the legs is possible (most noticeable in men), an increase in sensitivity to low temperatures.

The disease, called Morton's neuroma, alsoknown as plantar fasciitis. Localized pain at the base of the fingers. Painful sensations are caused by increased pressure on the nerve. Among women, this disease occurs five times more often than among men.

The chronic nature of the negative effect on the nerve causes its thickening and sensitization.

The main symptoms of plantar fasciitisare painful sensations. Localization of pain - at the base of the second, third, or fourth toe. Wearing weights, as well as walking, causes increased pain. Pain can be given towards the calf, or to other fingers.

Numbness in the feet and toes. as well as the pain that occurs when walking, in the toes can be caused by diabetes. Often, with this diagnosis, there are complaints of a burning sensation in the feet, especially worsening at night. This is evidence of problems of vascular nature, as well as hyperactivity of nerve endings.

The most common occurrence of ingrown nailson the big toe. The ingrown nail may be accompanied by severe pain, swelling, redness, and infections. Tight shoes, uneven or too short nails cutting can lead to this problem.

Cramps are called outgrowths of dead cells,which harden and settle on the skin of the legs. Localization of hardening can occur on the heels, on the foot cushions or on the thumb. There are cracks that have a root that penetrates deeply into the skin and is called the core. This type of hardening gives a lot of inconvenience to the person.
