Well new to the forums, and new to gout ! I am sat here not having slept due to pain in my big toe joint, this started yesterday I knew instantly it was gout, I used to work with a colleague years ago who suffered it in his 30`s. I carry all the alarm bells like alcohol over wieght but have ALWAYS drunk at least a litre of water a day, but for some strange reason I have not been doing and whammmmm ! I have never known pain like it. Bad enough during the day but in the night ! its just cranks up A LOT
Why does gout pain get worse in the night ?
