I am 36 yo and had massive gout attack just before New Year, i had 4-5 attacks over the past 5 years but this one was the longest and most painful.
I was taking painkillers and indomethacin and it managed to get rid of it after 2 weeks of pain and misery, however, there is lump left on my big toe joint where attack happened and i can not bend my big toe all the way like i can on my other foot.
I felt pain and gout didn't completely disappear.
I went to dr and he gave me prednisolone to take for 3 days and colchine (which i didnt take btw as there no pain per se) only when i press that bump feels kinda painfull.
I finished with 3 days of prednisolone and while it helped a bit the lump is still there and i can say that my big toe joint doesn't feel as healthy as the other one, its like 80% ok but not quite there and i always feel like it can get nasty
I am a bit worried about this, what can it be? it is definitely not normal compared to my other foot, What can i do to fix this, x-rays, medicine...
Im thinking of going back to my dr and tell him that meds didn't quite fix the problem but i would like to hear from people here who had this issue.
