1st Gout attack triggered by stress

Hi, I am 33 and healthy male and do not drink alcohol and always eat a balanced diet, however I was purchasing a new house and put down my life savings as a deposit for the dream house for me, my wife and two small kids, due to some legal problems I was informed that the sale could not go through and I would lose my life savings, the stress was too much for me while the legal teams were battling and holding my monies. After a week I started to feel a problem with my big toe and within a few days I could not walk, I contacted my doctor and after tests was informed I had Gout, This clearly shows that Stress triggered the Gout. Hope my story will help someone.
