My husband suffers with gout, usually when he is drinking too much, and eating too much red meat. If you cut that out for a while (I am not saying that that is what you are doing, lol, oops, needed better words, lol) and go and see your doctor about this, he will be able to check your blood for the uric acid levels, and tell you if it is gout, or something else. Gout is a form of arthritis, and can be very painful to you. It will be hot and swollen, and will hurt like you are saying, go to the e.r. If you have to, good luck and I hope this helps you out.

YES   . You have pseudo gout ... Get an injection of a steroid and prescription for allopurinol and you will be able to wear shoes again ... Your welcome
