Big Toe Swollen Middle Joint
Arthritis: Actually it could be a number of different things but if it has all of a sudden become red, hot, swollen, and painful it may be gout. If it has been developing over many years then it is likely something called "hallux limitus" or "hallux rigidus" which is basically an arthritic process of the big toe joint that over time causes limitation of motion. I would recommend seeing a podiatrist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Left big toe tendon has lumps bumps and swelling along it and big toe is painful . Throbbing pain in big toe too?
I would: See a foot doctor. The question is are the lumps or bumps really on the tendon or in the subcutaneous tissues.....either way you should be examined, much easier to make a diagnosis like that in person... Possible ganglionic cyst is an example without seeing you but if I saw your foot inperson I would know right away if that's what you had. ...Read more

18 days, my big left toe hurts. swelling on ball, toe hurts to lift and bend down.3 day bruising around joint.Arch hurts. needle pain on end big toe.
Oh Boy, Not Fun.: Since you did not mention that your suffered an injury to the toe, there must be something else going on. You paint a very convincing picture of a mildly acute gout attack. The inflamed big toe joint is not so much red as it is more of a darker plum color. It will hurt to move in any direction and the swelling is sometimes pronounced. This is diagnosed clinically so you need to see a doctor. ...Read more

Left hand middle finger tight with stiffness. Can't bend it. Swollen @ the joint & palm. No pain, just uncomfortable.
No injury?: Assuming you haven't injured that finger somehow (sometimes it is hard to remember...might have seemed like nothing at the time)... I'm thinking things that aren't exactly "serious", but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt! Possibly tendinitis in that finger, or a bit of arthritis in the joint. Try using an ice pack, and reducing movement, maybe w/ a splint. If it continues, I would get an x-ray. ...Read more
