Sorry to hear!! Been in your shoes often. Start drinking water alot and if you can, get to a Dr for some painkillers. Any inflammatory medication will offer some relief, such as Aleve. If this is your first attack, there will probably be more if you don't see a Dr for some assistance. Your Dr can help diagnose what could be causing your Gout and prescribe medication accordingly. Hope this help.
