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.
Yes it gets red, xray shows a bone spur. Doc says "you're too young for arthritis" then looks at the xrays of my low back, feet, hands and says "you have arthritis". I'm 37: young shmung.
