Re: Fibro and gout?

Gout is caused by high uric acid levels not central nervous system disorders which is basically what fibromyalgia is. I don't know if there is a connection between the two except that both are considered arthritic conditions (not sure why fibromyalgia is considered here as it is mostly muscles that are affected) but they certainly can occur together.
