Thanks everyone! I see my primary doctor at 1:30. I also have a call in to my gastro doc. He's at the hospital today, so I may hear back from them around lunch time she said. I told her I'm worried about
seeing my family doctor, because he just disagrees so much about
me not being able to take NSAIDS. Even with my history of a GI bleed. If he thinks it's gout I know he's going to force the issue of taking some powerful NSAIDS. That will just be a waste of time for me.
But I'm still unsure of what's going on. This morning the thumb is less swollen and painful. Still sore and puffy though. I wouldn't think gout would improve so quickly? My foot still hurts though, and "feels" more swollen then it looks (you can hardly see swelling). Gee, I can't even imagine what else could cause such a thing.
All I know is we go on vacation in a month. I don't want to start swelling up when were out of state. Kidney stores is also something I don't want! I remember my Dad having those when I was little, and watching him in so much pain!
Diagnosed with mild Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Currently taking Asacol and Questran.
