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 ).
