Re: Swollen Middle Toe

There can be many different reason for this problem. The obvious ones are an injury or infection. If the circulation or lymphatic system to the toe has been injured, it will take a while to resolve. If I suspected a vascular problem, I would have a Doppler test done including plethysmography (which measures the circulation in the toe). There are some types of arthritic conditions that can result in this as well.

Without seeing the foot and examining it as well as the x-rays and possibly the MRI (not EKG?) I can't be very specific.

If you have not seen a podiatrist, I recommend you do so. If you have, then you might consider a rheumatologist.

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.
