Regina,

The only way to properly diagnose if you have Gout is to get a blood test and have your Uric Acid measured. It sure sounds like a Gout Flare, but without the data of your Uric Acid results, one would only be guessing.

Once you get your blood drawn, schedule an appointment with a Rhuemotologist (a General Practiconeer might be hesitant to diagnose Gout) and have the Rhuemotologist go over the results with you.

This is truly the only way to tell if you have Gout. And the reality is, that if you DO have Gout, and this is your first attack, it will probably NOT be your last. Do yourself a favor, if only for piece of mind, get your blood checked.
