Re: Shikko, toes, ouch!
Robert's too young for arthritis-hi Robert.
You might want to have a podiatrist check your toes. Otherwise there are exercises of gradual stretching you might try. See Ikeda's Za.
Matt: if it is the right big toe and it gets red in the joint where the foot and toe join then you might have gout. Depending on your age it could also be a spur.
