No gout for me. I had a lot of feet trouble before my diagnosis -I was checked for gout a few times because of family history and I was okay. My brother does have sever gout issues, but he's type 2.

Do anyof the type ones out there have experience with gout as well? I was diagnosed about two weeks ago, after the first major, typical, flare. The doctor started meds, and I see him in a couple more weeks.
But---for years I have had neuralgic problems in my feet that are atypical for both diabetes (started shen my blood glucose was in normal range, and they tell me it has never been far enough out of range to cause the typical neuropathy in the feet) and gout (other than the one major and two minor flares in the toe joints in the last six weeks, I have never experienced the usual joint symptoms.)
The odd pains in my feet have grown more significant over the 15 years since I first noticed the very beginnings of them, and now it seems to me that there is some relationship between those sensations and the gout. The most pronounced atypical sensation is that I feel as though I am wearing an elastic sock. Occasional shooting tingles.
I have reported this over those fifteen years to several doctors; no ideas.
Anyone? I said more than anyone would want to hear about my feet---but I would be very appreciative of knowing if anybody has similar experience!
