I am taking Indomethacin, Prednisolone and Plucloxacillin for Inflammation. The Inflammation has gone down their is no swelling now except a lump on the side of my foot at the big toe joint which is tender too touch and have a burning sensation at times. I am well aware that gout does massive damage too the body which is another reason I am worried about it I am only 32 I don;t want to be 40 and in a wheelchair due too severely damaged joints. I am seeing a different doctor turns out the doctor I am supposed too see wont be their all week but I am still going my doctor said it could be Cellulitis I am really hoping that’s all it is and I have had blood tests I will hopefully find out the results today but all the evidence leads too gout. I am really going too miss beer 🙁
