sorry about the late reply
it could be gout
are you overweight?
is it super painful?
The possibilities here would be infection (cellulitis), gout (can occur in any joint or near any joint), and a blood clot
I really think you should have this checked out as soon as possible.
making sure it isn't infection is key
if you could email me a picture I could tell you a lot more
