I’m a 35 year old, skinny Asian guy. Was in good shape before a gout attack over about month and a half ago. I had been eating out a lot due to my wife’s absence, and my uric acid level was at 8.4 at the time of the attack. After a strict diet and some herbs, I brought my uric acid level down down to 5 mg/dl, and at a visit to rheumatologist, was told that no further treatment was needed. But I’m still getting redness, swelling and mild pain on occasion. I can be walkable in the morning, and limping at night. Has anyone had similar experience. I’m baffled why symptoms persist even though I hit the target uric acid level.
