Difficulty Walking With Pain In The Fingertips. What Are The Symptoms Of Gout?
Good morning, I want to ask my father, a few weeks ago, I couldn’t walk after eating meat and now he is a little limping. My father complained that at this time he felt pain in all the tips of his fingers. My father smoked and occasionally drank alcoholic beverages. Is this due to the high uric acid levels and what foods should you avoid? Thank you I am waiting for the answer.
