Hi Mr Gora, it could be the arthritis, biing the chronic condition gout may not be appearent suddenly.If the pain lasts for many days in spite of the treatment you can think of the gout.
I to my patient with such pain advise, to avoid potato, other tubers, tomato, egg, chicken, and sea foods.
If no relief then i prescribe neurotropic injections for 5 concecutive days, and aceclophenic and paracetamol combination. Thank you.
