Pain in toe. Normal blood uric acid level. History of knee pain. Suggestions?
Hello, in 2001 when I was 19 I developed left knee pain which was quite painful,tender and hot..it resolved within 2-3 days but occurred in a span of months after that..I consulted orthopedician who told my knee looks normal and I should get tested for uric acid , but I didn t get tested that time..now in 2010 I developed pain in my left big toe again very painful since then I have on and off knee and toe pain in one or the other leg but only one joint involved at a time..recently between attacks I got blood uric acid done which was in normal range..please suggest what could be my diagnosis..
Hi, It seems that there might be having possibility of having Rheumatoid arthritis where one or more than one, small or big joints are affected. Go for RA test to rule out Rh.arthritis. Gout is ruled out as your uric acid is normal. Ok and take care.
