Chronic Pain

Hello,

4 years back I had a shooting pain on my left feet for couple of weeks, and then it reduced.    A year later, the pain had progressed to my left knee and left groin.    After 2 years, now the pain in my left knee is gone.   However, I have the constant dull pain on my left feet and left groin.   Interestingly I get pain on my left wrist as well.

Can this be Gout?   If yes, what are the tests can confirm it?  

I am 35 years old.I tested for Reactive Arthritis (RA) which came back negative and clear.

Hi there!

This does not sound like gout, though the possibility may be considered. One may consider looking or other possibilities such as injuries, degeneration, infection, inflammation, neuro-muscular/ vascular causes and alternative causes for groin pain. I would suggest getting his evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed or suspected it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
