I have had gout attacks every couple times a year lasting a few days. The last attack was about three weeks ago. My foot has remained swollen, red with virtually no pain - normal walking.
Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?
Customer: now my kidneys are a little sore and my face is occasionally a little swollen.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: The symptoms are three weeks old. Painful at first. Kidneys a few days. Symptoms remain static.
