Just have a knee injury, due to slipping on the floor. The Radiological Report Comes out as:
Quoted" Osteophytes are seen along the articular margins of femur and pattella,Possible fracture of lateral aspects of pattela is seen. Soft tissues swelling is seen at suprapatellar region anteriorly.

Impression: Early Osteoarthritic changes are seen in the right knee joint.Possible fracture of lateral aspects of right pattella, would recommend skyline view""Unqoute

The advise and I have gone through 3 weeks POP cast from toe to thies.As the cast removed after three week, the next day I feel pain in the left toe and the adjoining finger , and swelling. I call Dr for the advise, why it is such so ,he advise me for Blood Uric Acid Test. and the report comes out at 7.6-which is high.
What to know , why is this in early age. and why as per the report Why Early Osteoarthritic changes are seen in the right knee joint.

3-2-2013 I always thought gout was a man's disease. Not any more.yes women can get gout very painful more dangerous if you have kidney disease like I do. First the doctor thought I sprained my ankle but the fluid went into my ankle and my leg. Foot/ankle was twice the size and very red.. I went to a foot doctor he told me the I had "Gout" I was shocked.I wore a mibile cast for 2 weeks the pain is horrific.My uric acid level is 11.2. Which is extremely high.I think my gout came from the fish oil I was taken. I don't drink or eat shell fish.I don't eat organ meat very little red meat. The best thing to do is to keep a journal of everything you eat. I know that even mushrooms and beans can give you gout. Have to do is research. Youtube is a good place to learn about gout.
