Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Do you have a diagnosis or history of gout?

For the benefit of our readers, gout is a disease caused by inflammation from an accumulation of uric acid crystals around the joint. Your body may make too much uric acid, or have difficulty getting rid of uric acid. Not everyone with high uric acid levels in the blood has gout.

Pain often starts in the big toe and progresses to the foot and other joints. So your pain that has gone up to your upper thigh and buttocks can be related.

Are you taking steps to ease your gout symptoms?

Doctors recommend following a low-purine diet (green vegetables, tomatoes, fruits and fruit juices, breads not containing yeast, nuts, milk, butter, cheese, chocolate, coffee and tea). Foods like beef, pork, bacon, lamb, seafood, and yeast should be avoided. Asparagus, cauliflower, mushrooms, peas, spinach, whole-grain breads and cereals, white poultry, kidney and lima beans should be used in moderation only.

We hope to hear back from you-
