As we're getting close to FLM, I'm getting a bit paranoid about injuries. I've got a very slight pain where my toe nail meets my toe and wondered if it was ingrowing. Has anyone had it before and could they describe the early symptoms...

i never manage to catch my in-growing toenails early, only once they've got to the manky horrible painful infected i-can't-run-cos-it-makes-me-cry stage.

But check for swelling and redness at the top/side of the toe which would probably be a good sign. Tenderness too. And don't dig it out with scissors/knives/matchsticks cos you'll make it worse *voice of experience*
