I think I might have gout. I have this intense pain in the join for my big toe connected to my foot. I've had a problem with my ankle since high school, soccer injury, causes me to have a slight hop in my step becuase my angle doesn't bend all the way. I've gotten an infected toe before that lasted a year, I think due to the change in pressure against my nail, and now I have this pain that comes and goes in that ball joint. Is that gout?
