Wow! Your description of your finger gout makes me shudder As I have had the same affliction in my middle finger, last joint just below the nail. Because of the incredible pain. I actually had to go to the E-R for analysis. They’re conclusion was a bone infection, then treated with a plethora of unneeded antibiotics, which did nothing because it was gout related tophi that they saw as a bacterial infection.. That joint is still misshapen, but I have had no day to day issues with it at all. I have been gout flair-up and attack free for 6 months now through supplements and diet, (no meds). I will post more on that very soon. Stay healthy…
