I have S.I. joint pain (right hip/low back). started taking Gralise two nights ago and my big toe (right foot) started swelling and hurts really bad. I've never had gout before but I think that is what it is. My husband gets gout so, I know the symptoms. I'm thinking that the Gralise is what has caused it but, I'm not sure.
