Please forgive my ignorance, this is all new to me. Woke up yesterday morning with pretty bad knee pain. Slightly swollen, no tenderness, no burning feeling. Howevet the pain was bad enough that I could not walk on it without crutches. Doctor did some blood tests that afternoon. Just around that time the pain began to subside. She diagnosed me with Gout as my levels were at 8.9! Here we are a day later, the knee is a little sore but otherwise okay and I can walk on it. I haven't taken anything yet although she prescribed several things for me. She also said I had some sort of infection in my blood which she gave me antibiotics for.
I had just come off a night of drinking a lot of beer and eating a ton of sushi. Could this have spiked my uric acid levels temporarily and the knee pain is something other than Gout? Thoughts?
