Gout and Psuedogout are not the same thing, just so we are all clear.
The only way to definitively diagnose you is to draw some of that fluid out and put it under the microscope. An X-ray may show some calcification, but the go-to will be checking the fluid.

Sounds like you’re in...good hands... going to a hand specialist.

It is a manageable disease process, so that’s good news and miles better than an infection. Good luck. Please do report back. Always nice to follow a case on here.
