Gout?

I having been having problems with pain in my foot, its really bad and when it happens I can't walk. it really seems like gout but I am a vegetarian, I have been avoiding legumes and other foods known to cause gout, I do not drink beer, could there be other causes or could it be a different condition? It has been happening quite often these past few months...

I would suggest going to see your doctor and request a blood test. Have your doctor test your Uric Acid level. If the level is high, good chances it could be gout. My boyfriend has the same problem as you. He is acutally going through a gout attack now, and he has horrible pain in his foot/big  toe area.

If you are a diabetic or have a poor immune system it could be neuropathy. Check with a endocrinologist they can run blood work and find out.
