A 33-year-old female asked about a 58-year-old female:
58y/o female- sore, warm to the touch, quarter sized lumps below her achilles' tendon. will call doc monday if not gone, but could this be gout?

Is it possible? Yes: Does it sound like it? Not really. First off that's not really a joint area and gout usually affects joints. Without seeing the lumps it is hard to take a guess....I am it sure why hey would "disappear" by Monday.....if there is anyway you can show us a picture that would be helpful in us helping you.
