Should I go to a podiatrist?

I have been feeling this sore feeling in my big toe joint what could it be? I tried to pop it and it feels fine but then every once in a while that feeling comes back almost like a slight electric feeling or like when I let off weight its like it is saying aaahhh...weird!

Not sure what it is what do you ladies think? Thank you :)

  • Hi, my hubby is an orhthotist, and this could be anything from ill-fitting shoes, to a hairline fracture or arthritis,,yes you should go! You may just need some orthotics, and the ones they sell on TV, malls etc, are not custom made to your foot.

  • Could be Gout. It is very common in the big toe. Try drinking tart cherry juice. Stay away from red meats & high protein foods for a few days.
