A weird toe symptom, TMS?

    Hi guys,

    I've been getting back into hiking recently and pushing through the ankle TMS that was stopping me from doing that before.

    Now I've got a really weird symptom where then I take a stride the top of my hiking shoes push onto the top of my big toe, which can become unconfortable. At first this was only happening with one pair of hiking shoes and I thought it must be the shoes not fitting my right foot properly. Then I noticed the same thing occurring in all of my shoes, including my big hiking boots, work shoes and casual canvas pumps. Now this makes not sense to me, why would shoes and boots that did not have this issue before suddenly have this problem occurring?

    It is a strange one though because for my brain to cause this it must either hypersensitive the top of my big toe so it feels a lot of pressure when it didn't before, or it must be causing the toe to feel like it is feeling pressure when it isn't every time I take a stride. What do you guys think TMS?

    Tomorrow I've devised a hike which is very similar in terms of distance and height to a hike I did a couple of months ago in the same hiking shoes. A couple of months ago I did not have this big toe pressing sensation, so if I get the pressing sensation tomorrow it must be TMS, sound about right?

    Psychologically, I've been trying to choose a wedding photographer, which as a photographer myself I've found extremely stressful. I've even started feeling some indigestion, which is something I've never felt before either although I know indigestion is 100% tms.

    Thanks in advance for your support guys. =)

    Yeah it totally happened again, even faster this time, although no extra distance or steepness in the hike. Must be TMS.
