    sorry for the lame topic,

    but im fortunate enough to never get injuries, or sick

    every now again ill get a sniffle or ill get a twitch in my arm, shoulder or back and it would be gone in 2 mins,

    the other day I woke up , I felt fine, fast fwd a few hours and my toe was in pain, deep in the bone area or joint, I was limping and couldnt put any pressure on it, and hte pain was pretty bad

    if you touched the surface of the toe it had no pain, only when you put pressure on it

    being a stubborn male and assuming it would heal itself due to my perfect medical history
    woke up the next morning, it was a tad swollen, and pain was about 80% of yesterday
    fast fwd half a day, swelling gone, 95% pain gone, I just went for a long power walk and its fine,

    so it was obviously not a broken toe,
    I doubt it was muscle,

    so medically, any of you know what sort of exaplanation can explain excruticating pain deep inside the toe join for a few hours, and almost be completely fixed half a day later?

    Go and see a doctor. This is a property investment forum not Dr Google.

    This is a guess... gout?

    Anyway this is my finger from a weekend volleyball injury last weekend, but happily now its not too bad. I just couldn't really bend it for a while:

    Doesn't sound like gout - is usually exquisitely sensitive to touch, even the bedsheet is unbearable.

    If it's a one-off, who cares. I wouldn't see a doctor either, they won't be able to tell you what it was.

    How old are you?
    Which toe - more specifically, which joint?
    Any history of defined trauma?
    Could you wiggle it without pain? Could someone else wiggle it without pain?

    If it's gone and a one-off, a doctor will shrug and say - 'don't know, but it's gone'.

    Like I am.

    @Bran will not be visiting you ever for GP advice :p
    But yeah, my GP would say "potentially x, y and z. Since it's ok now, then that's fine. Come back or call me when it happens again. Try a, b, c to relief the pain"

    The old abc medication should work well in this case.
    A- anti inflammatory tablets
    C- cement should fix you up

    Couldn't think of anything for B.

    late 30s
    thumb/toe
    no history of trauma or injury
    wirggling was impossible, and painful, felt like it was broken
    if someone touched the surface it was fine, only when they treid to move it

    yeah so just confused how something so painful could simply just disappear in a matter of 12 -24 hours

    just has me baffled ;)

    thank you for caring everyone.....well most of you ;)

    I had a similar sounding thing from wearing safety boots that were a tad too small, where the steel toecap was touching, I figured it irritated a nerve. Bigger boots fixed it. Anyway yours is gone, hopefully that's it over.

    Bundy will make it worse ...

    Does it throb ? Worse at night ? Big toe ( technically1st metatarsal joint ) ?

    Gout most likely .

    Not to be missed diagnosis infection , infection . That was the reason why Harry Kewell missed the game against Italy in 2006 World Cup . Dr thought he had gout and gave him a steroid injection and turned out was infection , so night before game he got much worse and missedt game( medical trivia ..,. )

    Hey yeah... it could simply be an infection. Good thinking.

    Could be fith syndrome also known as a vesicocysternal fistula.
