The question is why UK, GPs are failing to detect gout when looking at the foot in pain? I went to my GP after suffering with foot pain in India for 2 weeks. New GP looked at my foot and send me for X-ray with pain killing medication! In frustration and in pain, called the surgery and asked for gout medication, got a perception for gout medication three days ago and getting better. This is not the first time, repeat problem over the last five years. Last gout problem was two years ago, again when I was overseas.
Is there any medication to prevent gout?
