I lost a big toenail a while back and the new nail started growing back without problem until now. As it is reaching the end of my toe (still a little way off) it seems to be pressing down into the soft end of my toe. I cannot get anything under to lift it. I'm in the middle of training for a 50 mile ultra in July and don't really want to be away from training but its getting worse and I can feel it running. Anyone else had this?
I lost both of my big toe nails when training for my first marathon, due to ill-fitting shoes. If was a painful experience.
Like you, when the new nail approached the end of my toe, it began digging in. The tip of my toe became very sensitive and sore. I tried to get various tools under the nail to pry it up, but without much success. Ouch.
Eventually it did sort itself out. If yours doesnt, a podiatrist will probably be able to help. Good luck!
Thanks. All the time its fine for running I'm inclined to leave it but dont want it to get much worse! Ive lost nails before but never a big toe nail and never had this problem.
I had INGROWING nail and corns on the toe, I did a pedicure with nail drill and is well. Always clean and sterile tools and professionalism. High-quality service. www.purefeetspa.co.uk
And I was run 20 km 2 days later. No pain, no sore.
