I'm 52/female & had what seemed like fairly mild gout pain for a few days, twice in the past year. Then a few weeks ago it came back and is not going away. The pain is primarily in my big toe but there's only slight overall puffiness, not the huge red swollen toe I've seen online. The pain is intense at times but it's not constant. It feels almost like a burning sensation, and sometimes deep achiness with shooting pains. It's peculiar. Shoes hurt a LOT. I don't eat much red meat at all. And I rarely drink alcohol. So I have no clue about triggers. I haven't been to the doctor, not a fan of meds. I thought cherry juice was helping but that turned out to be not true. Help.
