Pain in top of foot - second time different foot?!

Hi all,

A few weeks ago I woke up with my right foot hurting. The pain was at the top right, in the middle of the foot. I went to the doctor and he said either gout or a stress fracture. It was very painful and swollen for two days and went away.He did a blood test and my uric acid was within range, the top being 8.6 and I was at 8.1.

Now a few weeks later I have the exact same issue in my left foot! This time it only lasted a day and it is pretty much back to normal. Anyone have any ideas on this? I went to a different doc for the second occurence and he said maybe gout, but doesnt gout last several days? Gout does not disappear overnight, does it?

Not sure why this is happening, its got me worried.
