sore toe
My toe next to the big toe is very sore especially when cold. I suspect it to be arthritis. Is there any way they can get rid of the pain - for example fusing the bobnes together or numbing the nerves as I think that toe is not very important. Who must I see

Dear Bones
Yes, it could be a bit of oste-arthritis, but it could also be a circulation problem. Ask your doctor to have a look and maybe refer you to a specialist physician.
