In brief: Arthritis

Your family doctor has an number of oral and injectable medications to offer, as well as diagnostic tests for gout, and osteoarthritis, the likely sources of great toe pain.
If the arthritis progresses and simple treatments fail, an orthopedist for further x-rays and treatment options. A rheumatologist may be consulted for forms of arthritis that affect multiple joints and tissues.
