Intermittent s pain in big toe,red hard lump,no heat,swelling, shoes don't affect it,worse at evening, feels like circulation cut off,bunion or gout?
Could be either: A painful, swollen big toe joint that occurs from time to time is likely to be gout or other type of arthritis. A permanent bump that is more painful after wearing shoes all day is more likely to be a bunion. By your description, bunion is more likely.

I'm 31 days post op. Bunion removal & pipj fusion of second toe, pin in second toe is a little loose & moves up/down turns sideways. Is this normal?
Not abnormal: It is not unusual for the pin, which is usually a "K-wire" to feel slightly loose. The "K-wire" is usually smooth and not threaded like a screw (though there are threaded K wires). As a result, it can feel loose. I encourage all post operative patients to seek the advice of the surgeon who performed the procedure(s). Your surgeon has the ability to evaluate your foot and the X-rays. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My big toe is crossing over my second toe. I got told this may be a bunion. I am only 17. I experience no pain from it. Do i need a surgery?
Think it Over.: Your description certainly sounds like a bunion to me. Whether or not you have it removed is entirely up to you. The usual reasons include pain, either with or without shoes. Some times the ability to even buy shoes is a problem. Believe it or not, but, people even have them removed because they don't like the way they look. My advice is to have them removed when you are ready and well informed. ...Read more
Have a bunion whrre my big toe is pressing against my second toe. The tip of my second toe is numb. Could that be the cause?
Yes: Bunions and the deformity associated w/ them( hallux valgus) can press on the second toe and cause deformity ( hammertoes, etc.). Pressure on the second toe digital nerve can certainly cause numbness you are experiencing. See your orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist for evaluation. Best of Luck! ...Read more
