A different kind of gout?

by Sue
(New England, USA)

I've never had pain in my big toe. My toes have felt stiff and a bit achy, like I just finished the longest walk ever taken, but never the pain in the toe people describe. Instead, I get shooting pain in both my ankles and my knees, and occassionally, my shins. So far the drugs I've been put on haven't cured, or put into remission, any of these lovely symptoms.

Anyway, the point is, while gout might show itself in the toe in general, it's not always where it decides to take hold.

Keeping away gout
by: Varun

One thing my doctor has told me is to continue allopurinol for life. Reason being is I do not drink, eat red meats and gout has been in the family - grandfather, uncle and my uric acid levels are high 590 (max being 440 in Canada ie). He laso aksed me to take a low dose of colchicine everyday. He warned me if I stopped taking allopurinol I may be welcoming kidney stones. The doctor is a rehumatologist. From GNC I picked Max Gout relief.
