what is wrong with my pinky toenail?

the toenail i think split but thinking it was cuticle, i tried to push it down and off of my toe. now, it looks as if it may have fused back together but it sticks up and is thick like underneath (with a brown spot/line in one spot i think where it was split) and it kills to walk. can't even wear heels and that is all i own!
please help.
what do i do?

Update: March 14, 2010.
thank you for all of your help. turns out, doc said it was just excess skin acting as an ingrown toenail because the pressure from the shoe was pressing against the skin. as a lot of you said, she prescribed me to soak my foot in epsom salt and then try to file it down or cut it...did it but ever so gently so i don't know if i got anywhere with it.

What's wrong? It has been injured and now is possibly infected.

Get to a podiatrist because he/she will know how to fix it best.

See a podiatrist for your toe and a optometrist for your eyesight.
