Middle toe on left foot swollen and painful. No bites or abrasions. X-ray normal.What could be the cause?

In October 2011 i went to my foot doctor to find out why the middle toe on my left foot was swollen and painful. There were no bites, or abrasions that would have caused it and an x-ray did not show any problems with the bone . this is the fourth time that my toe has been like this and it is the only one that is doing this. is there any thing i can do?
