There's a pain in the joint of my toe. I have done an Xray and there's no bone issues. Could it be related to gout?

Hi thanks for the query. From the complaints you had described the reason for the pain in the toe could be due to injury or some times due to gout. If there is no history of injury, it is better to get uric acid test and consult your local orthopedician.
