I walked, maybe 20 blocks total, the other day when my big toe on my right foot started hurting. I don't think I stubbed my toe anywhere, it just happened. I'm jumping to conclusions but I think it could be the beginning of gout. A lot of people I know have it. They're not sedentary either. I played lots of sports, drink some beer and eat out a lot. This is more a question to people with gout, what was your first sign of gout?
