Welcome Don. I also have never heard of Gout flares taking place in an area that isn’t typically a joint. Like Nobody says, you might want to do follow up on that. Depending on where that pain is (under the ribs, near the sternum is kind of generic) it could be one of many other things. Gallstones, Pancreatitus, or something else.

Follow up with a doctor. You don’t want to mess with the thoracic cavity area. Lots of vital organs and vessels in there.
