Brief Answer:
Probably gout, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to gout.

Gout is a form of arthritis caused by excess uric acid in the blood.

I recommend to do a blood test to measure the levels of uric acid and creatinine in your blood.

I also recommend an x ray of the big toes to confirm the diagnosis.

Meanwhile, I recommend to use anti-inflammatory medication such as Naproxen 500 mg three tablets a day.

If the diagnosis is confirmed there are several treatments such as Allopurinol to limit the acid uric level in the system.

This medication is prescribed, so you should consult your doctor before taking it.

I also recommend to drink liquids and limit your intake of meat, fish and poultry.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
