Uric Acid Levels
I have high levels of uric acid levels in my system. Which of course points to Gout.
However..I do not have the swelling a single location pain I have seen in my husbands bouts with gout. I do however have major joint/muscle pain and stiffness after activity, (yard work, handling freight at work etc) after sitting for periods of time, and at night. Some nights i cant sleep because my whole body aches so bad, and i have to be cautious when i get out of bed during the night to stand a few seconds before taking steps.
Is this Gout..or is it something else that my doctor is over looking because the blood test results just point to gout? Coltrasine..did nothing for the uric acid levels.
