Not entierly surprising.

The way I see it, you have a few choices:
-see your regular doctor next week
-see another doctor such as a rheumatologist (the specialty dealing with gout)
-start by assessing the seriousness of the situation yourself, using your uric acid test results

Without knowing your test results (if you only have the one, I recommend getting another blood test next month), I can’t tell you much more except for the following…
Staying off booze is of course not bad advice at such but it’s at best incomplete when it comes to gout. Very lazy on the doctor’s part.
