On August 20, 2006 my husband woke up on a Sunday morning and couldnt walk on his right side. Foot was swollen, the doctor said it could be gout. Four months later, the foot is still swollen, there are high liver enzyme levels, and he hasnt worked since august. We have had a liver ultrasound, a liver biopsy, and no one knows what this is. This isnt gout. We need some help here. All of his labs are pointing at the direction of having AutoImmune Hepatitus but the liver biopsy came back normal so that ruled that out. Any suggestions what this could be????

All of the symptons and tests are identical to mine. My Rumotologist can't makea diagnosis. Things are getting so bad for me now that I'm afraid soonI will not be able to walk at all. I've been living with a limp-walk for 10months now. Please Please (begging) U to respond back with what everhappened to your husbands foot problem. Thank you sincerely Will
