    I started yesterday with a little stiffness and soreness on my big toe of my left foot. Today it was very stiff and now my top part of my foot is swollen. The pain has come down the inside of my left foot from my toe to the top of my arch. It is very tender to touch and can hardly walk on it. It is not red or hot. Just pain and stiffness. Do you know what it could be.

    It could be lots of things, but you need a hands-on evaluation to even begin to sort them out. Certainly, acute gout would be consistent with SOME of what you have reported, but without the finding of heat and redness, that would be a difficult assumption to make.
