Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are having bad pain in your toe
you need blood tests to check for uric acid which can be elevated in gout
you may need an MRI scan in your foot to check for tendonitis.
after these tests, if you still have pain, you should get an ultrasound of the toe to look for cysts which can be drained.
an orthopedic doctor can drain any fluid in the cyst
you can try icing the toe and foot for now
and elevating the foot to help decrease swelling.
