After a few false starts at diagnosis, a urine test showed at high level of Uric Acid. My GP has started me down the route of treating me for gout. But something doesn't feel right. I have painful feet and ankles, my toes are particularly painful but I don't have obvious extreme attacks, nor do I get the classic inflamed redness. I do have highs and lows, on days when it is worse my knees, elbows and wrists also come out in sympathy. I have often heard gout pain compared with child birth - if so, I don't understand the fuss. Mine is more akin to a dull toothache. Is this just another way that gout presents itself, or can high uric acid cause other conditions?
