Big toe pain (quality: warm to touch, pain in joint). Possibly gout. However, uric acid levels are always in normal range. What else could it be?

Walks like a duck?: Don't be too anxious to discount possible gout. There is more to it than having a elevated uric acid. You need to look at the quality of your diet and life style, genetics, age, body type and degree of swelling, heat and pain. The time tested method of securing the diagnosis of gout is evaluation of the joint fluid. To remove all doubt, have your toe evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more
