I don't think this is gout. Most likely it's tenosynovitis--tendon inflammation that can come on suddenly without injury involved. Rest, antiinflammatories and either heat or ice--whichever works best--and, sometimes, a splint usually help it to resolve, although, sometimes, a corstisone injection may be needed. Rarely, it can be a sign of rheumatoid arthritis, so I suggest you see a doctor about it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
