I have been experiencing pain and swelling in my pinky toe for two weeks now .. it didn't start there though it started back in July under my big toe and went across .. i cannot say i had severe pain in my big toe as it is somewhat numb ..
I also have been having severe pain in my left hip that by morning I am in such pain and numblike yet burning at the same time .. this goes on down to my foot .. on the left side and no arthitis or anything showed up on xrays so we assumed it was muscular ..
but back to this pain in my right foot .. the pain was severe at first on the joint under my big toe and it sorta subsided but still throbs every now and then , all of a sudden my pinky toe blew up twice the size and it burns ..
I am seeing my Internist and let her check for gout .. iI do not drink , eat shellfish or any of that stuff other than enjoy a good steak but just wondering if until I do see the doctor if there is any temporary relief ..
It is sore but massaging helps , it gets too cold and really irks me so if anyone has any suggestions in the meantime please jump on in .. thanks
