The Back Leg Of Your Knee Hurts When You Bend It For A Long Time?
Five days ago (Sunday) I checked uric acid levels. My uric acid level is 8. Three days later (Wednesday) I consume instant noodles at night, then sleep while turning on the air conditioner. When I woke up, my legs hurt so much. Precisely at the back of the knee. Walking becomes very difficult and painful. Now the pain has subsided because I took painkillers and allopurinol. I noticed, every time I bent my legs long enough (for hours) the pain reappeared. Do I really suffer from gout? or is there another injury? Is it true that the leg should not be in a cold room temperature? U003cbr u003e
