Dr. Thomas Inwood
Podiatry 35 years experience
Gout: Absolutely. Commonly affected areas are big to joint, ankle , knee , elbow , ear lobe. Less frequent are mpj of the foot - the toe foot joint - and wrist and fingers. See your podiatrist, rheumatologist or a knowledgeable family doc ( not a slam on family doc's - it has been my experience that many don't deal with gout well at all ).
Dr. EVAN Leibowitz
Rheumatology 25 years experience
Yes: Gout commonly occurs in the ankle. Also the toes and mid foot. Gout attacks can occur in practically any joint. However we almost never see gout attacks in the shoulders or hip joints.
