Thanks Keith, please see my latest post in a new thread. I don’t fit into a group because I thought I had gout and have now been told by two docs that I don’t. I’m not the waffler, it’s them! 😉 Honestly I don’t see what else it could be, but they say it could be b12 or nerve damage. Do you think that’s possible with your knowledge? My pain is in the fingertips/toes, not joints. I definitely “feel” things moving around once I take the allopurinol. One doc, my best friend who visited from out of town, claimed I exhibit zero of the signs so doesn’t understand why my normal doc diagnosed it as that (other than I told him I thought I had it.
They have me down for being allergic to allopurinol now because of the huge rash it caused, so I don’t know if I’d even be able to take it again if I wanted to.
