Well, I went to the doctor about a week ago limping due to the stiffness and pain in my left ankle. No trauma occurred recently so the doctor believes it to be Gout.

He prescribed me Prednisone for 12 days and it went right to work on the swelling and pain.

My only issue is that I am still feeling pain in the ankle joint. I can walk but with a slight limp and if I happen to rotate my ankle a certain way the pain is pretty bad.

How long does the pain linger around?
