Q: My big toe in my right foot keeps cracking and my ball of the foot hurts too

Doctor

A:   Hello
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. There are many possibilities but two most common is osteoarthritis and gout. X-ray of right great toe and serum uric acid level help in diagnosis. You can take analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Glucosamine is helpful in osteoarthritis. Hope your query get answered.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
