Hi, I'm scheduled to see a doctor in 3 weeks but in the mean time I'd like to learn a bit more on what I might have.
In the last 3 weeks I've been having pain in my toes (about 6 different joints) and fingers ( about 4 joints) especially the bottom of my left big toe every time I eat meat especially lamb. Last night I had to completely avoid walking on that toe. All this is also accompanied by red swollen hands and feet (looking like edema).
1 Could this be gout?
2 Why do I always read of attacks being 1-2 times a year or maybe a little more often? Doesn't gout flare up every time red meat is consumed and not just once in a while?
