Thank you once again, Keith! That is a fabulous explanation that will be helpful to a lot of people.
I don’t think we have any “good” docs in my little town, I’ve been through a number and they’re all generalists who refer you out – which is fine, except there’s no gout specialist.
But my current doc thinks it’s odd that I’m still having pain and it doesn’t feel like joints, it is in the pads/soft tissues of my fingers & toes. I believe I’ve seen on here you can feel it in your bloodstream and not just around your joints, but not sure how that works. Anyway, I’m seeing a Rheum doc next week so that should maybe help. It took my brother 3 years to figure out his problem was RA so although this doesn’t feel like RA, I have to rule it out. If it’s gout I would think it’d be gone very soon as I’ve been at 4.9 for a few days shy of a month and it hurts more now than it did back when I first started having pain.
