Well, Tony, there are things you can do to relieve gout pain. But, it will resolve naturally anyway, as I think you are experiencing now.

The biggest problem is that it will keep coming back until you can control uric acid down to a safe level. Also, it gets worse each time. Because uric acid crystals are forming even on days that you feel no pain. So, we really need uric acid test results to start. Are walk-in labs a possibility? Sorry, but you’ll have to explain the cost implications to me, as I’m UK-based.
