When I didn't know what was going on, my first real sustained attack, I decided to drink a bottle of Scotch to help me sleep. ?It seemed to add days to the ordeal. ?I finally went to the doctor and upon finding out what I had, they looked at me like I was insane when I told them I had been drinking scotch to deal with the pain. ?

I doubt it's pseudo gout, it started in my big toes ten years ago, and then a couple of years back started to travel to my left knee. ?I've had my uric acid tested at the doctor before, and it was fairly high.
