Doctors, Could pf cause a neuritis in the great toe? My pt thinks that my digital nerve is being irritated by pf, could that be a possibility? when i press underneath my great toe to the medial side (under the nail) it produces the pain.Anyone have any ideas what is being irritated? Thanks

This is probaby someone completely separate and not related to your plant fascia. A pronatory gait can cause pressure on the saphenous nerve against the shoe and or the orthosis You may even have a fungus toe nail or ingrown toe nail. See your podiatrist again and have them evaluate this
