The 143 patients with gout were recruited from patients who follow up at the Department of Rheumatology of Faculty of Medicine Vajira Hospital, Phramongkutklao Hospital and Police General Hospital using a simple random technique. Research instruments consisted of 8 parts: 1) the demographic patients’ data, 2) chronic pain grade questionnaires, 3) the pain coping inventory (PCI), 4) the Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI), 5) the short form health survey-36. Content validity was examined by eight experts and reliability was tested using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient as 0.78, 0.91, 0.80, and 0.88, respectively. Data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, and Pearson’s product moment correlation.
