Kidney infection and Gout?

Hi. I am having a lot of trouble with kidney infections.
From Nov 09 to Feb 10 I have had 14 kidney infections, all treated with antibittics.
there was a space of no in infection up to 10 days ago, when I developed yet another infection.
During this latest infection, I also started have very bad pain in my big toe. It is not red, swollen,or inflamed.The pain seems to be coming from under the big toe.I would compare  it to a cramp pain.It comes and goes, like a spasm, but seems to be increasing in intensity.
My dr thinks I have Gout, but I am not sure I agree and before I start a 6 week course of Colchicine I would value a second opinion.
I am also, currently, under investigation for the repeat infections.
I would welcome any thoughts on the matter.Thank you. Cath278.
