For years I have had Gout, I have been tested and it is Gout.
Anyway, Doctors think it is odd but I get gout attacks from simply changing shoes. They are not cheap tight shoes but no matter what quality simply changing into different shoes will bring on an attack. Also just bumping my foot on something or twisting it wrong.(playing guitar will get my wrist or finger too)
Does anyone else have issues with shoes. I hate wearing crocs everyday
