    Get to a Poditrist (Foot Doctor) ASAP.  That is an infection of some type and you could loose a foot if you aren't careful.

    I don't want to scare you; but, you need to see a doctor immediately.  It sounds like there is an infection in the nail bed.  The black colour could indicate gangarene or blood poisoning - either way both are extremely dangerous and could cost you your life if left untreated.

    Please go to a doctor immediately and follow all instructions.  Good luck!
