Does anyone have info about gout or if I have it?  
In the year 2000, I stubbed my toe really bad & it never really healed. I didn't rest it properly & in 2004 was doing the "bridge" which obviously had me putting weight on the toe. I did other things & this injury in the big joint of my big toe is still there.  The info on gout shows redness outside, which I don't have. It did mention that an injury could cause gout.  Is there any dietary protocol that I could try to see if there is any improvement?
I find that if I don't walk regularly, I gain weight & lethargy(low blood sugar), so I need to walk.
Walking doesn't bother it too muchm but I think rest helps it.
Would a podiatrist help? I would think so. What blood type commonly gets this?  I would think it wouldn't be an O as not eating red meat is supposed to help heal it.....

Doesn't sound like a gout flare to me, my nan gets it and the area swells and is very shiny and red. The best way I have heard is to flush it from your system with fluid intake including cherry and pineapple juices...if it is gout.
Podiatrist could be good...

try 2 ounces of tart cherry juice in 2-4 ounces of water 3X a day, if the pain goes away after a few days, probably gout (highly uric count) continue with 1 oz daily with same amount of water 3 times a day.


Also look up low purine foods.

I am not sure but would maintain that eating right for his type would help.

in addition i would reduce carbs, sugar - always good advice i think.

some people suggest that healing problems in lower leg may be pre diabetes.

unskicking the blood would be good - in other words eating very right for your type

walking is recommended, nothing too rough though.

one might also look into inclined bed therapy which i am still testing many months down the line it seems to be okay, time will tell.

is there any reason to suspect DVT or clotting in lower leg or any recent surgery in that area hip replacement etc ?

Mrs.T:  this may sound weird, but given that you're questioning whether it may be gout because of the soreness of the toe, but no real gout symptoms, I'll mention it.  I've had problems in past years,  with the joint of my big right toe after days of excessive cross country skiing.  I had never thought that the toe joint could be adjusted, but while I was into the chiropractor about my back, after a ski trip, I happened to mention the pain in my big toe.  He adjusted it and the pain quit.  What a wonderful relief afterward.

Just a thought.

Geminisue is right, in my opinion and because my DH was diagnosed with gout. From what I have read it can be more frequent in BT O (my DH is a Hunter).
The juices really work!

My husband suffers with this as well lately. Both feet and one foot he stubbed his toe quite badly years ago. He thought that they were bunions but a friend who saw his feet this summer has the same condition and said he was diagnosed with gout and is opting to take medication for it.

My DH has stated drinking a concoction of Black Cherry juice concentrate along with baking soda before bed and every morning he rubs castor oil in his toes before putting on his work boots and it is helping quite a bit.
He won't eat spinach or asparagus because of the purines but is still eating beef. Previous to GTD he had not eaten beef for 30 years! There is another ointment that a massage therapist gave him that is from India that is successful in breaking things down. If you are interested let me know and I can get the name for you.

My big toes started to hurt since the GTD and I get spinach as a diamond but I quit taking it and my toes don't hurt anymore.

Hi All!
I'm just now reading most of these answers.  
In the past, 2 Chiropractors have said to gently pull the toe maybe a few times a day.  It was better for a few days & then wasn't.  It would be cool if an adjustment would help!
I'll try to get some of that cherry juice the next time I get to the vitamin store.
Thanks for all the input. The closest thing I ever had to surgery was pulling some teeth, & I am careful about what fats I eat, hoping to avoid DVT(Of course, I had a lot of butter during T-giving!). But thanks for that warning. So much can go wrong, but more often we are OK.

As usual, this forum rocks!!!!!!!!

The big toe is better with rest, altho I still exercise & walk regularly. I am drinking the tart cherry juice. It can't hurt. It also doesn't seem to jolt my blood sugar like other 100% juices might. Yay!

I have another sore spot on that foot which is more recent. It might be from the wrong shoes or an injury, but at least the big toe is better. There might be some inflammation cuz of the injury, so I feel good about doing the juice therapy. It also is delicious!
