Back in September I got my uric acid results being 9.5. I got retested in November and the levels remained the same. I changed my eating habits and started exercising for the rest of the year, however, after the holidays and new year. In February, I got tested again and results came back to 8.5! However, after receiving the news of my levels changing. my old habits snuck up on me.
Sadly, I am back to my old eating habits. Yesterday morning, Saturday, I ran errands around town, didn't do anything straining. In the evening after all my errands, I felt a slight pain and discomfort in my left ankle. I was unable to fully twist it towards the right. I didn't think anything of it other than maybe I did something low key to strain it.
This morning, Sunday morning, the pain is still there. I can walk and stand. Slowly and carefully walk. I do not know what my levels are at the moment but I have a feeling they maybe through the roof, hence this whole ordeal. I am not on any medication for gout.
My question and concern is, is this my form of gout? Have never had a toe flare up or any type of flare. This is my first encounter with pain towards the feet. In the past, I did, however feel occasional tinglingness in my big toe. Have not felt that for a few months and now this with the ankle.
I am planning to visit my doctor if the pain does not subside by Wednesday.
Please share your thoughts. Thank you in advance and I apologize for the wordiness. I just want to make sure all details are mentioned to get the best advice.
Scared and worried person.
