Hello and thanks for writing in
If you had not trauma in the past few days than this pain can be related to the spine problem or sciatica. But these type of pain starts from the back and goes to the lower end of limb. The pain which started from the big toe is the pain if Gout. You can check it by blood investigation of Uric acid. If it is increased than you have to get treatment for that.
Hope I have answered your query.
Best Wishes
