Hi Fred!
Diclofenac should help all gout sufferers but how much it helps would depend on the dose. So it would be helpful if you specified the doses you’re talking about when comparing its efficacy to similar drugs such as ibuprofen.
Gout in the ankle or knee is supposed to be pretty common. Certainly it didn’t take long for me to get gout-like symptoms there after getting them in the toe. But there are other joints which are normally not affected by gout.
Finally, in case you weren’t aware… diclofenac will not stop the progress of gout and only prevents part of the damage it does to your joints. If you don’t do something about your uric acid, your gout is likely to get worse over time.
