I have recently started a weekend job where I am on my feet all day. UGH…it is rough on these old bones. I noticed I was having a lot of pain in one of my big toes so I started keeping an eye on it and I thought I had some dirt at the base of the nail bed. It turns out to seem to be something under my nail and it sends stabbing pains. It looks like it would if I had dropped something heavy on it, but I have not done that.
I called the podiatrist and have an appointment in a couple of weeks, but I was wondering if any of you had any advice on how to help the pain or if I should keep it raised when I can?
