My left big toe won't bend. And the joint is swollen. Doctors can't figure it out.

Ok so last year around July-august I noticed that my big toe wasn't going back. I thought maybe it was from some pointy toed heels I wore. So I went to a podiatrist and took a xray. Nothing. (Or so she said) So I went and got an MRI done. Once again nothing. So I went to yet another doctor. They ruled out gout and arthritis. (I took steroids but that didn't help. Actually it seemed to aggravate it even more). I tried using crutches and a boot. But it still won't bend back. It's been going on for months. Now the bottom of my toe feels like needles.(nerve damage? Idk) I have wondered if it's turf toe, so I did r.i.c.e but nothing. Or perhaps it's a very painful bunion forming? Idk. Either way it's painful and has been going on for a long time. I need help I'm desperate because I can't do anything with a hurt foot.
