I understand people do not usually get gout symptoms there but I had a weird gout-like thing on the ribs at one point. Unlike the typical foot/knee/hand symptoms, it didn’t last long nor was it very painful. No redness either so the location where I felt the pain might not have been the inflamed location.
I’ve also had definitely non-gout pain in that area. Better make sure it’s not the stomach, the gallbladder or something.
