Eruption on big toe

Posted by Bob B on 3/22/03 at 23:25 (113957)

My big toe has developed a small rounded portrusion at the first joint. It has about a 1/4 dia across and is about the same height. The eruption is very sore and makes me walk with a limp, although it does not keep me from sleeping it does leave me unable to get exercise. I have had gout in the past but this does not act like the gout. I am 73 years old and recently I adopted a vegan diet. I would like any help I can get this. A doctor at an emergency center said it looked like a leakage of synovial fluid and nothing could be done for it. He said sometimes they just go away. He also said he could drain the fluid but it would simply return.
