Any1 suffering from Gout?

What is gout?
Gout occurs when there are abnormal, elevated levels of uric acid in the blood and tissues. When uric acid accumulates in the blood and tissues, it can crystallize in a joint, forming tiny, jagged, needle-shaped crystals. Urid acid crystals then trigger an intense inflammatory response and a reaction from the immune system that causes a painful arthritis condition called a gout attack. Gout commonly affects the big toe, but other joints or surrounding tissues of the instep, ankle, knee, wrist, elbow and fingers can also be affected.

I think i have problem with gout. Is there any test which can pinpoint whether i suffering from gout or isit based on the symptom?

I feel pain/swell in my joint of big toe, hip, knee. It happen randomly.

Any1 else also suffering? Come share ur experience..
