Please Help. My mom has toe middle toes that are swollen, red, and very painful. It started with one toe and now has moved into another one. She is negative for gout, negative for blood clot, MRI is normal. She has been to her PCP twice with no answers, to the emergency room with no answers, and now to a vein specialist with no answers. Please, please help. She is in her late 60s and this has put her on a cane.

  • I would check with a naturopath. Reason is, is that it may be due to internal body inflammation, especially if if she has an auto-immune disorder, allergies, or Gastro inflammation. Even if she has none of these, it may be worth checking, as they look at a more holistic approach to health. Good luck!
