This can also be caused by constriction of the brachial plexus (the big nerve bundle that goes to the arm) - either due to spasm or it may be due to a nerve pinching in the neck but the doctor probably checked for that by doing a x/ray. Gout is a joint disease mostly - see http://www.health24.com/news/Arthritis/1-891,29659.asp
Although you may have clinical high uric acid the pain could be from something else - it may be worth your while to see a physiotherapist and ask her to test the brachial plexus mobility?
