I think I have gout

I have literally been up most of the night because my big toe joint hurts too badly to even put a sheet over it.  I've been looking it up and I believe it's probably gout, but I am really not looking forward to finding out.

Oh no :-(

At least it is treatable.  Hopefully you can get in with your doctor and see what it is.

Could it be an ingrown hair?

This happened to my husband, turned out it was just an ingrown hair. As soon as he got it out, the pain went away.

My husand has this issue last weekend and went to the emergency room at midnight because he couldn't stand the pain anymore.  The gave him meds and pain pills.  He is feeling better now.  He went to the family doctor on Tuesday and got more meds and now is going to get blood work done.  

 

Good luck and don't wait to go see a doctor.  The sooner you get the medicine the quicker it will heal.

I just googled gout yesterday because my co-worker has it. It often starts with the big toe. His knee had swelled up and when he went to the doctor, the doctor said it was his gout and gave him med. I guess it affects the lower limbs. Do see the doc and do get put on meds. Also, they'll tell you to be active and eat good. :)
