While playing football i wanted too shoot but the defensive player shot the ball away and instead of shooting the ball, i shot the side of his foot really hard. he's fine, but my big toe really hurts at the joint that "connects" my toe to my foot. it hurts when i push the side of my toe (at the joint) and when i push my toe inwards. first it also hurted a lot when pushing it up, down or to the outside, but those pains have diminished over a week. However i cant fully bend my toe whitout pain when walking. when i play football i feel a fierce pain whenever i shoot the ball because it gives a big push to the joint, the pain goes away after a few minutes, but a distant continuous pain stays. i dont know what it is, i found turf toe but it seems that that means that the muscle under my toe is injured, but i only feel pain when pushing the side of the joint.
