I am hoping for some details about pseudogout crystals. I know they are different to the ones causing gout, but I am not sure about anything else, pretty much. Can someone update me on what the pseudogout crystals are? And gout is caused by... puric acid crystals if my memory serves me well?

You are right about the crystals causing gout, it is indeed puric acid. pseudogout on the other hand is caused by calcium pyrophosphate crystals building up in the joint. It is normally limited to feet and legs, and in most cases toes are affected. Failure to treat pseudogout properly can result in long term health problems and even severe disability.
