Since yesterday morning, I have been having an acute pain and stiffness in the joint of the big toe on the left foot. Also, there is a little amount of swelling. The symptoms are similar to elevated uric acid levels. Four years ago, I had a spike in uric acid levels. I have given my sample for a blood test. Can you suggest some medicine in the meanwhile?

Thank you doctor,
I have got my blood report today and I have attached the same here. The uric acid level is 8.7. I have the following queries. I have started taking Naproxen. Do I need to continue the same and for how many days? What food should I avoid and eat? Can I eat chicken or fish? Can you suggest any treatment to reduce the swelling and pain in the foot?

Answer: Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com. As it is an injury around the eye, it may cause congestion in the eyes and secondary infection as well. She also needs analgesics.
