What are the symptoms? My F.ing hands and wrist have been killing me the past week. Feels like someone took a hammer and beat the shit out of my wrist and every jiont in my hands. Hurts just to touch them at times. Killing my finger tip joints as I type this now. Started getting bad about 6 weeks ago with burning in my knuckles and very hard to make a fist. Feels like my hands are bruised everywhere. Any meds that help. This shit sucks!

I have gout in my feet . When it flares up it usually gets reddish . Gout tends to affect lower joints in the body . It's probably arthritus .

Good deal. If you need to get the UA under control, skip the dietary and holistic BS and get on allopurinol.

If you can, have the doctor check you for lymes disease and blood protein count.....hope your not in the first stages of Fibromyalgia like I was last year.....I need to take my pain pills when I wake up, then lay there for them to kick in before I get up some days. :(

I had my first gout flare last week and I'm still not 100% over it. I couldn't walk at all. That shit hurts like hell. Salads and berries along with lots of water.

I had it so bad once in the wrist hurt so bad to pick up an empty coffee cup or glass. as was said before get you some allopurinol and monitor your UA. If it is over 6.5 you are in the danger zone.

I'm afraid I might have fibromyalgia/also I have pain/sensitive to the touch in places for no reason all the time. Never been tested or talked to the doc about it.

Is it worse during cold, damp mornings? I have a Boxers fracture 5th med in my left hand with a plate and 6 screws in it....got it 6 years ago with a warning that eventually a combination of the muscle rubbing over the plate with the severity of the damage and 15 years of boxing would take it's toll. I just didn't think it would be so soon. I use aspercream and ibuprofin....combination seems to work pretty good for me. Sucks on cold mornings I cannot close my hand sometimes.

I have a boxers fracture on my right hand and I have broken 3 fingers on that hand, two knuckles, and after I created the boxers fracture of course I have broken it again 2 other times on separate occasions.

I have the same problem when it starts to get cold outside I cannot make a fist or open my hand up all the way as if I was about to "High Five" someone. It is a dull grinding aching pain/sensation. No sharp or shooting pain just dull and grinding like it's coming from the inside out and it aches with my pulse. Meaning as my blood pumps it will ache, then recede then ache then recede.

Most of the time I have to run hot water over my hand just to warm it up and try and make it go away which it doesn't for hours.

I saw a specialist at the Washington Hospital Center last year and gout can occur in any joint or tendon in your body. There are places that are more prevalent but that is because they are generally joints subject to other ailments. It can also be brought on and caused by alot of different triggers, my father it's shellfish and innards (liver and stuff like that). The guy I saw said he has patients he's studying that it gets triggered from read meat, beer and all kinds of weird stuff. I trigger doesn't have to be a cause of the high acid count, it just effects the body in a way that triggers the reaction.

When my gout flares up , I hit it with 1000mg of sodium naproxin ( not good for high blood pressure ). Then follow with regular dosage amounts . It works good on me , but everyones different.

Friend of mine at work has RA. I can't imagine the pain he goes through at times. Seen his hands double in size in a few hours when it is really bothering him.
