I am in my mid fifties, pretty healthy with bad sore big toe, later swelling appeared on the top of my foot which stayed . I was told by my doctor that it wasn't gout, because I was the wrong sex and too young.She thought it might be Mortons nueroma. However recently my second toe has gone red ,swollen as if it has been stubbed.Hev any women reading this had similar problems. I do walk a lot.

I had the same thing....u need to get your blood tested and they will know...my primary doctor said i didn't have gout then it switched feet and got red on the top...once u get your uric acid levels tested you'll know..also when u have a possible attack the level may go down so u want to get tested again after the attack....good luck..my email is [email protected]
Let me know but more than likely gout, same path i took !!
