Wondering

My uric acid is 7.9, my Dad has had gout, and I'm wondering about myself. My big toes feel kinda stiff, achy. But I've been so anxious about it, I wonder if I'm imagining it all. How will I know if and when it's real? Will it just hurt like crazy all of a sudden, or does it build up slowly?

For me it is just crazy pain all of a sudden - the first time I had an attack it WAS in my big toe, and I didn't know what was going on. It felt like I had broken that toe.

I always stock my body of celery and cherries when I feel like an attack is coming on. It works for me - but it may not work for all.
I'm going to do likewise. I like both celery and cherries.
