Gosh 10.27- that's stretching it just a tad, don't you think? "any swollen joint"? I would still like to make a go of diagnosing acute Gout myself. When I woke up one day with an acutely swollen PIP joint of my left middle finger 2 years ago, I didn't think, "I must get to Rheumatology ASAP". Just my humble opinion though- I might be out of date. Retiring in 19 hours.
