So even though it looked awful and should have been horrendously painful, he couldn't feel a thing and it didn't bother him at all. The only instance I've ever heard of where two nasty maladies combined to cancel each other out.
Well, that's a lucky break, I guess. Maybe not so much when the toe gets gangrene, but lucky in the interim.

I was not aware of that. Thought it was an old person thing. My relatives were all older when they came down with it.

He died from Alzheimer's a couple of years ago. The toe never got him.

I'll point out that a toe injury against the Chiefs ended Jack Lambert's career, so take it seriously. You can't anchor against offensive linemen if you have a bad toe.

Rub some dirt on it.

Be a man, don't rub it. That's what chicks do.

All things my high school basketball coach used to tell me.

I broke one of mine several years ago. Kicked a concrete support beam in my basement during a storm blackout. Hurt like a mofo for about a month.

I started getting gout at age 19. It’s been tolerable and it’s been deathly crippling. Get on meds, your doc will probably tell you rest, elevation, and most importantly, get as many bee jays as possible. (On a side note, steroid shots are a miracle cure).

If it's an arthritic problem you could try Aleve (generic Naproxen). I have a big toe with a minor bunion problem that will eventually require surgery. My Podiatrist told me to double up on Naproxen. Works for me after a day or two.

You know, you don't REALLY need a big toe.

Have you tried not sticking it in your ass so frequently?

Iím not diagnosed (I donít go to the doctor for anything)Ö but Iíve had textbook gout flare ups in my right big toe since my early 20ís. They progressively are getting worse and stay for longer. I recently discovered bio freeze on Amazon which helps get me sleep through the night and hobble around during flare ups.
