Re: swollen "big toe" joint

From your description, one possibility might be gout. If the lab tested for uric acid crystals and there were none, then that might rule it out. Another remote possibility is pseudogout (rare) or even rheumatoid arthritis.

I recommend you see a rheumatologist if you are not getting anywhere.
