Pain In The Big Toe (the little piggy that went to market)

Pain in the joint where the big toe meets the foot that occurs suddenly is often caused by gout.  Gout is caused by  the collection of uric acid crystals in the joint. The crystals cause massive inflammation and pain in the joint.

Pain in the big toe that occurs gradually over time is usually caused by a type of arthritis that is referred to as hallux rigidus or hallux limitus. If the joint doesn't move at all it is referred to as rigidus.  If there is limited movement it is referred to as limitus. Hallux is the medical term for the big toe.

It is important to diagnosis hallux limitus before it becomes hallux rigidus.  Orthotics with specially designed cut-outs can ease the pain of hallux limitus and slow the progression to hallux rigidus.
