Not had that, but have had a few flareups of gout a year for over 30 yrs now.
That is no fun either.

I've had it a couple times, proper footwear seems to be the main "preventative"!  I've various therapies, including shots in my heal (big ouch), battery powered medication pads & others.  Podiatrist tells me no moccasins, barefoot or heal-less shoes!

My dr tells me Gout is a build up of uric acid causing crystals to form in the joint.
It is these crystals rubbing on nerves that causes the irritation.
I can be a skeptic at times, and did not believe this when my wife's uncle told me that sour cherries would reduce uric acid.
When in pain I will do anything for some relief. This. Works for me.
I recommend eating a cherry pie when you have a flare up!

May need one tomorrow, had shrimp for lunch today.

I have had this as well, spent a while researching it on Google, and found that rolling my arch over the bar under the kitchen table, ( similar to the recommended rolling pin), worked wonders.

Black cherry soda pop does the trick for me....

Had this flare up to the point i could hardly walk. 

Best cure for me has been arch support inserts from Red Wing and stretching my calve muscles and feet.  I will stand on a step with the front of my feet supported and then lower my heels as far as I could.  This was a morning ritual every day on the way into the building at work.  Made a huge difference in my comfort level. Even got some co-workers into doing the same thing.    Rick

I went through this a few years ago. I had the pain get progressively worse for about a year. I tried all the usual treatments with zero relief: physical therapy, custom orthotics that didn't fit in any normal shoe known to man, the arch stretching elf boots that were mentioned earlier, the rolling pin stretches, three rounds of cortisone shots in the heel (no fun,) you name it. What did the trick for me are Walk Fit brand orthotics picked up for $20 from Target. They're semi rigid with a replaceable hard arch support. They give you three different height supports to stretch the arch and the inserts fit just about every shoe I have. After having the condition for a year+, the pain cleared up in about a week of regular use of the insole. They're still an everyday thing for me.

that is the stretch the doc showed me to do!    I found another one that works sometimes too, when I get out of my truck I will use the wheel/tire on my truck to push down my foot to stretch it while holding on to the fender so I don't fall over.
