The most common cause of toe pain is wearing improperly fitted shoes. Women often wear tight shoes that are narrow and constrictive, and thus are most prone to foot and toe problems. Tight shoes often cause overcrowding of toes and result in a variety of structural defects that get worse over time.
Bunion is common and is an abnormal bony mass that forms on the big toe and points outwards. This deformity is unsightly and painful. When the big toe enlarges at the base, it can force the other toes to crowd against each other. Over time, the big toe pushes outwards and alters the normal outline of the foot. Bunions occur for many reasons but the most common is not wearing proper shoes or not having custom fitted orthotic shoe insoles or inserts, arthritis and different inherited structural defects.
Hammer toes are unsightly and reveal a toe that is curled due to a bend in the middle joint of the toe. A hammer toe occur chiefly because the shoe is too tight at the front or the heels are too high. In such situations, the toe is strained against the front of the shoe and results in an abnormal twist. Relieving pain, pressure, changing shoe wear or wearing a type of shoe insert is adequate for most people.
Gout often presents with pain and tenderness at the base of the big toe. Generally women are more prone to gout after menopause. An acute attack of gout is intensely painful and walking on the foot is impossible. Gout is essentially a disorder caused by precipitation of uric acid crystals in the toe joints and ankle joints.
