Painful, Swollen Big Toe

Had a problem for the past 7 years, about three times a year, get a swolen big toe, could be on either foot. My Uric Acid is high, 9 mg/dL, but the symptoms do not match gout-as I can walk (limp), and the swelling is not the tight, hot, red type typically described for gout. Are there degrees of gout, and I happen to have a mild case? NSAIDs usually help, but this time, over the past two weeks, I have tried colchicine, naproxen, diclofenac and now Feldene, each with no improvement. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
