Hi Joe!
Unfortunately fixing gout often takes a long time. But the sooner you start, the better.
You can try to mask the symptoms with heavy anti-inflammatory doses and colchicine so as to get back on your feet quickly but in the long run, controlling uric acid is what matters.
Because that can take a long time, it could be worth your while to find ways to exercise a bit which are very gentle on whichever foot is currently affected. There are a few things you can do at home even if you don’t have room for a gym-type contraption but perhaps you could get to a gym with the help of crutches.
