Oh man does my toenail hurt! What could it be?

So I woke up this morning in some pretty bad pain. The center of my big toenail absolutely hurts! It's bad enough to keep me from sleeping or doing pretty much anything else. What's the deal with this?
It's the center of my toenail, so it's not an ingrown nail, right? When I push on the edges, they feel fine. But if I push downward on the very center top of the nail, yeowch! I'm pretty miserable at the moment.
I haven't stubbed my toe so far as I'm aware, none of the others hurt, I've pretty much only been wearing sandals the past few days, the coloration seems fine so far as I can tell through my nailpolish (no remover handy, and I don't think I could stand to rub on my toenail to take the polish off right now anyways).
Please, what can I do? Googling is useless, all I get are things about ingrown nails or runner's nails.
