Thursday afternoon my big toe and the joint around it starting hurting, swelling and extremely painful to move. It seemed to get better Friday, but it was at its worse last night. As much as I hated to go I went to the Emergency room last night to figure out what the hell was wrong. The doctor looked at it, said it was gout and wrote me a couple prescriptions. One prescription was only 3 pills and after taking those three I started feeling relief in the joint after about an hour. This morning I woke up with bad pain in my ankle, but my toe feels much better (still sore).
Just wondered if anyone has experienced this and what I should do? It's very difficult to walk and I can't be disabled for a week.
