In brief: Maybe gout

what you are describing may be gout.
That can be inherited or be the result of medical problems or medicines. It is extremely painful and easily treated. There are other possibilities as well. Call your physician this morning

Wouldn't it be great to know which joint?

In brief: Gouch.

Gout can affect several joints in the foot.
Typically you will not only have pain with even the slightest touch but your foot will be extremely warm. You can feel this heat 6 inches away. An odd red color may also be present. If this is indeed the problem, you need to consulted on how to keep it under control.
