I’ve republished this page at 7 Ways Gout Causes Back Pain. Because as part of a bigger picture, the main issue with gout back pain is many people don’t believe it exists.

So gout sufferers become victims as either:
– They don’t believe they have gout, so don’t seek uric acid treatment.
– Their doctor doesn’t believe in spinal gout, so they get the wrong treatment.

Therefore, I’d be very pleased to get comments from gout sufferers who have experienced either of these.

Also, I’ve noticed a few topics about back pain during uric acid treatment. I believe this is part of the issue where flare-ups occur in previously unaffected joints as old uric acid crystals suddenly dissolve. So, I’m now wondering if I should update again to “8 ways gout causes back pain”?
