Saw my GP on Friday, first time in 6 years.
Explained that I’d had gout previously but that I thought that this time round I’d got it in the knee’s (left one a few weeks ago and the right one was playing up now).
GP – You can’t get gout in the knee
JA – That’s not what your website says
GP – My website? I haven’t got a website!
JA – Yes you have. It states normally in toe but can effect any other joint, elbow, fingers, knee.
GP- Well that’s rare (from impossible to rare in a brief sentence oh dear how very unscientific).
GP – What?
JA – Rare, but they still exist
GP – Oh I see ha ha ha
