Our expert says:
It is possible that you are suffering from gout, which can be treated well when diagnosed but unfortunately, there are several other conditions that can cause the same symptoms. Therefore, it is important that you consult a doctor for an examination, as well as blood tests and x-rays of the effected joints.
In the interim, you can use Advil Gel Caps 200 - 400mg, three times daily, to alleviate the pain until a proper diagnosis has been made.
