I have all the symptoms of Gout. However, my orthopedic said it’s Cellulitis. He further stated the Uric Acid in my blood is too low.

I took Diclofenac and got immediate relief three months ago. I’m presently experiencing a flare up.

Hello, Anon! Thank you for writing.

We can't speak to whether or not you have cellulitis or gout. This is for your doctor to say. I would follow whatever treatments he (or she) has recommended.

Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication. It works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. Diclofenac is used to treat mild to moderate pain, or signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
