dvt or gout Community Group
I have had several bouts of gout in the past 15 years , but have not had a gout attack in 5 years. For the past 5 days my calf and ankle are red , swollen and itchy. Calf is tender and painful.From what I have read this resembles a possible DVT. Gout usually affects the joints especially the toe. Not sure if I should go to the emergency room.
