I am a 23 year old female runner. I ran distance in high school and college. I have been out of running for about 2 years now and I am trying to get back into shape....but this really has nothing to do with my question. I have a medical question I guess you could say. Since high school my feet have been hurting when running and sometimes when walking. The big joint of my big toe on both feet usually hurts when I run. It is a pain deep inside the joint. I don't know what it is or what to do about it. I had it looked at by our athletic trainers in college but they couldn't tell me what it was or what to do to fix it. I don't have insurance at this time either so I can't really afford to go to the doctor right now. So, if you have any suggestions of what might be wrong or what I could do to fix this then please let me know.
