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

For over 2 months when bending big toe sharp pain above PIP joint area, not in the joint. Numb to the right of pain down to big toe mound. What is it?
A tendon: It seems that you re not feeling pain in the joint, but The Extensor hallucis Longus tendon might be the source. It may have been strained causing some inflammation. Just recently saw a couple of these. The joint may need some range of motion exercises to get that tendon to stretch. It is for some reason, unable to go the distance with flexion of that toe. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Any diabetic with : Foot pain warrants a in person exam as there is little room for misdiagnosis. You could have sesamoiditis, a stress fracture, tendonitis etc. Any possibility of a charcot foot must be considered. You make no mention of skin integrity and this must be examined as well.

GOUT: I'm going to guess the location as the big toe/bunion joint instead of the metatarsal. If I'm right, and the onset was sudden, no injury, it's hot and red and swollen, and the pain is excruciating, I'm going to say it's gout. You should see your PCP, first to confirm my diagnosis, then to get the appropriate treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A mortons: Extension on an orthotic at times can be helpful, this will decrease any residual motion which may be present. Injections are sometimes employed.

Technically : The big toe joint would be the interphalangeal joint not the mpj, but, I'm not sure which you are referring to. If the ip joint, I'd look to see if the toe was straight or not. If not internal compressive forces may be irritating the joint. If mpj is bothering you look for dorsal spurring to be a cause, I.e hallux limitus. Gout also affects this joint. ...Read more
Big toe pain (quality: warm to touch, pain in joint). Possibly gout. However, uric acid levels are always in normal range. What else could it be?
Walks like a duck?: Don't be too anxious to discount possible gout. There is more to it than having a elevated uric acid. You need to look at the quality of your diet and life style, genetics, age, body type and degree of swelling, heat and pain. The time tested method of securing the diagnosis of gout is evaluation of the joint fluid. To remove all doubt, have your toe evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

Can be many things: Unfortunately this is a very general question with hundreds of answers without more detail on your condition. But, combined the two can both occur at the same time from a low lumbar spine disc bulge or herniation causing a "sciatica".
