Hi all. I've been having overall mild joint pain with some tingling in my toes and fingers for a couple of months now. My doctor initially thought it could be diabetes and so ordered a blood test. My glucose actually came up okay but we were surprised that my Uric Acid level was 8.6mg/dl. So I thought that that would explain my aches and pains. However, my doctor refuses to consider gout since I have never had the classic painful and swollen toe. To be fair, she wants me to go get more blood tests and xrays.
I guess my question is can you have painful joints and tingling without the big toe pain and still have gout? Will high levels of Uric Acid cause that sort of pain? To be specific, I have pain in my knees, elbows and sometimes the big toe. But the most intense pain is actually in the second joint of my right pointer finger. I also feel a small lump underneath the skin at the joint.
Anybody have something similar?
Thanks in advance!
