Subject: Gout or Arthritis??

I have had an attack of gout which is now in it`s 4th week. The doc wont put me on Allopurinol until it clears up.
Is this likely to be arthritis ? I also have pain and swelling in my left fingers and general feeling of lethargy?
Thanks

Gout is a type of arthritis! You might have another type of arthritis too.Try and get a referral to a rheumatologist.
