I have been having gout for the past 5 years. It used to be 2-3 times a year with severe swelling and excruciating pain around the ankles but in recent times my lifestyle choices have helped reduce the recurrences. I have tried colchicine but sometimes it just takes too long. Using a combo of dichofenac and paracetamol really helps. But I am not sure whether this is recommended ? Also, I have never had gout in any other part such as the big toe... and am worried whether I am getting rheumatoid arthritis ?
