Hello,

Gout is a common type of arthritis. It's a sudden and painful inflammation that usually occurs in the big toe, but can affect other joints. It can also affect the collarbone. I suggest to check the uric acid levels for further evaluation.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
