Texas Physicians Medical Research Group has two research studies seeking participants.
1. GOUT:
-------------Gout is characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, redness and tenderness in joints, often the joint at the base of the big toe.
The most common sign of gout is a nighttime attack of swelling, tenderness, redness, and sharp pain in your big toe. You can also get gout attacks in your foot, ankle, or knees, or other joints. The attacks can last a few days or many weeks before the pain goes away.

2. SHINGLES with RASH (less than 72 hours old):
