Hi and welcome.
Why are you using tevamethacin?
Do you have any other disease?
Thanks for reply.
I think your doctor is right if you have high uric acid and have one sided swelling this is most likely gout. The treatment involves painkillers NSAIDs, tevamethasin is one of them . Swelling will take sometime to subside. I would suggest to followup with your doctor if it has shown no improvement after 1 to 2 weeks of treatment. You can apply ibuprofen gel over your foot along with ice therapy for about 20 to 30 minutes at least thrice a day. Avoid eating foods high in purines such as liver and sea food and take plenty of water.
Let me know if you have further questions.
