    A pain in the joint of my big toe and right foot has been appearing for some years now. It has never been so severe as it is now, so I visited a doctor. An X-ray was taken that showed no swelling or presence of arthritis. A shoe insole was given after cutting a part of it out below the big toe. Two weeks after this the pain just shot up one day and then went down by itself. No prominent exercise or other stress was applied to trigger the pain. MRI was prescribed in the next visit to the doctor, but that's very expensive. Are there other options?
