Hello Doctor,

My foot is swollen right now and I'm sure that my uric acid went up again. It happens in the past and I need some medication for the pain and the inflammation.
My height is 5'6 ft and my weight is 95kg.


Firstly, the photo uploaded isn't informative , as the extent of redness or inflammation isn't well demarcated

Secondly , do you have any past history of gout

If yes , how many Acute flares did u have in the past?

How severe , only foot , single joint or multiple joints ??? Any Triggers like boozing , food intake rich in Urate ? Any history oh Physical exertion ?

Well, management of gout includes three steps

Acute Flare Management

Acute Flare prevention

To clearThe Uric Acid stores and ti decrease deposition in joints

For now , Management of pain is crucial

T.Naproxen 750 mg stat and then T Naproxen 250 mg Thrice for %5-7 days with meals

T.Pantop 40 mg in the morning before breakfast


Avoid Purine rich diet , No to Alcohol , Beverages

Get the Uric acid levels Checked

Revert to me with 1)Uric Acid levels 2)Good photograph with proper focus on the affected area along with normal leg for reference 3)Detailed Past history 4)Diet And Drug history That includes both medicines and else as well

Very important is to follow proper Diet (keto Diet NO000), Loose weight Finally , the urge to treat without a proven diagnosis is always resisted , Hence diagnosis is mandatory for best management as we practice evidence based medicine

Get well soon Regards Dr Geeta
