- Any toe doctors around?
Woke up with intense pain at the top of my second toe on my left foot yesterday….it feels like I have hit it badly, but haven’t.
I can’t walk without limping, and the pain is worse if I try and bend it.
Dr Google tells me I have a combination of gout (although no redness or swelling), arthritis, metatarsal something…every new page I open gives me a new reason.
Until I can get to the docs, anyone experienced anything similar? I have exercised a lot this week (mix of kickboxing, circuits, cycling, gym and I did tough guy last weekend), but really don’t think I hit my toe.Posted 5 years agowonderchumpMember
It sounds like gout – If you can, go to the Pharmacy and get some of these…
Take then 2 at a time (50mg) not more than 3 times a day. Lay off purine rich foods and if it hasn’t subsided in a couple of days then see your GP for Allopurinol (to lower your purine levels) and either Diclofenac or Indomethacin for the pain.Posted 5 years ago
Cheers…will go to pharmacy. Still really painful.
And as for
Not so tough now are you
It was the summer one, so a piece of piss. Doesn’t really count as a tough guy.
So no. I am not tough. I’m a mincing cry baby with a poorly toe, and a self imposed alcohol break so can’t even drink the pain away 🙁Posted 5 years ago
