what could cause pain and swelling in my foot around my big toe?

Painful to put weight on that part of my foot
Almost feels jammed but don’t remeber bumping into anything
Pain for 2days, swelling came today

See doctor for proper diagnosis. Most probably it could be bunions. There are other condition too like arthritis or gout.

Try below remedies:




	Pour a few tablespoons of Epsom salt into the basin and fill with cool or lukewarm water, enough to cover the ankles. Epsom salt can easily be found anywhere where  first aid supplies are sold. Soak anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes. It is an easy way to soothe sore and irritated feet.

	Gently pull the toe through a comfortable range of motion. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat a few more times(Grasp your big toe and stretch it away from the second toe). Discontinue any stretching if pain worsens. Stretching exercises are a great way to address sore joints.

	Also you can try topical pain relief gels and creams available at stores and online.

It’s sounds like gout .I get it a few times a month
