Could be gout: Big toe pain associated with swelling, redness and warmth that is episodic could be gout. Gout can progress to cause severe damage of numerous joints and affect the kidneys. I recommend you see a rheumatologist to be evaluated for gout.

Lots of things: Osteoarthritis is the most common cause, any other type of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and gout can effect the toes. Calluses, bunions, and ill fitting shoes can also contribute. The doctor can usually identify these problems by examining your feet, but sometimes x-rays or labs are needed.

What is the definition or description of: Toe joint pain?

Dr. Scott Keith
Podiatry 44 years experience
Typically 9 joints.: Toe joints include any of the numerous joints that are found in the toes and enable movement of the toes. Typically the great toe has one. The second, third and fourth toes have two in each toe. The fifth or little toe can have either one or two. Some consider the joints that join the toes to the foot (metatarsal phalangeal joints) as toe joints also. Toe pain is when any one of these joints hurt.
