I recently was diagnosed with a herniated disc and two bulging discs. The pain was horrible. I was put on a slow release morphine, lyrica and celebrex. I think I may be experiencing gout!Just prior to the disc problem I was placed on very low doses of ramipril and metoprolol. The joint behind my big toe is extremely sore and swollen. I cannot put any weight on it. Gout???
No, I don't think it's gout. More than likely it's a pinched nerve from the herniated disk. It just happened to go to the nerve in your toe.
