If you've ever had it, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, believe me, you don't want it! Finally got the gun season over with so I can go in the woods without worrying about orange or getting shot, got a new squirrel dog and my trusty .22, ready to go hunt a nice bottom on the South Fork of the Ouachita. Woke up Sunday a.m. and when I put my left foot on the floor it felt like I stepped on hot coals. Left big toe and the area behind it is red, hot and sore as a boil. Anyone had one of this kind of flare up before, if so, is there anything short of amputation that will take some of the pain away?
