I had this for the first time riding in whistler last week, despite being on the same gear for the last 2 years. One of the guys I was hanging out with had been doing boot fitting for 6 years and said it was from too much movement in my boot, so I don't know why all of a sudden it happened.
Anyway, he made some modifications to my boots and it helped a bit, but it was past gone and toe nail is very black. Get your boot fitted. WAY worth it.
THis next part is NOT any official medical advice BUT. . .
I could feel the pressure building under my toe nail and really didn't wanna lose my nail because I wasn't sure if that would affect my season (and it would look gross) and it also really hurt. So. . I heated up a sharp object and poked a very small hole in the top of my nail. It feels fantastic and even my wife admitted that it immediately looked way better, and she hates when I perform self-surgery.
- Yeah I've done some more research and if you do go to the doctor, there is a good chance this will be the treatment they do anyway, so I don't mind doing it myself. Just watch out for infections. Hydrogen peroxide is your friend.
