Severly painful big toe - not gout

For the last 2 months I have had a severely painful big toe. My doctor is baffled. He says it is not gout. X-rays show nothing wrong. Visually there is nothing to see. No swelling. No redness. The pain is in the fleshy ball of the big toe and sometimes the tip of the toe. The pain is there all the time. It wakes me up in the night even. Extremely painful to walk. Painful to touch. Recently the tips of the other 2 toes next to it are also sometimes painful. I've been living on ibuprofen to combat the pain.I am desperate to find out what this could be. Have you ever heard of this?
