Just wanted to know if theres any reason why numbness from the waist down would give reason for a doctor to diagnose gout.? If the patient has a history of gout is numbness a symptom?

I have always felt that gout is a painful situation more like arthritis due to the uric acid problem but I am no dr either. You can always get a second opinion if you want.
I always felt that numbness can be caused thru possibly the neuro system such as a pinched nerve or diabetes or something similar to that but then again, I am no Dr., have you ever seen a neurologist?
Good luck!
