Hi--important question first--no trauma at all involved? Is the knee red and warm? Is it only the knee that's involved and no more of his leg?
There has been no trauma to his leg. Right knee very swollen but not hot or red and only in the knee area.
Thanks..Is there any issue with it being the right knee? He has had pains in his big toe previously so we thought gout. Should he keep his leg elevated? And lastly are there any particular foods like tomatoes that could exacerbate it?
