Hallux: The hallus is the large inside joint of your foot. This joint can get arthritis from a variety of causes, osteoarthritis, gout and rheumatoid arthritis to name a few. Defining your problem may include an examination, imaging such as x-ray, ultrasound or mri, ; laboratory testing or even removing fluid from that joint. There are other cases of arthritis of that joint also.
