2 Shots and two Prescriptions..doctor said the shots will take effect in less than one hour..I hope so..Gout is some bad painful stuff..dont wish this on anyone.

Did they check you uric acid levels or just give you the shots?

The only way to check uric acid levels is by a 24 hour urine study.The only thing that affects uric acid is animal flesh. It is well taken to avoid a opulent diets and to lose weigh and to drink fluids because peeing ultimately flushes out everything.

Foods high in purines are the primary cause of acid buildup. All the stuff I like, I can't eat..

Venison.. Beef.. All red meats.. Crawfish, oysters, shrimp, all bad.. Bacon bad.. Beer and all alcohols bad..

Deer meat is a killer for me.. Always wondered why every November 15 to Thanksgiving I had a bad attack..

Lots of vegetables are also high in purines..

I have tried the Alopurinol but it tears my stomach a new one..

Indomethacin is a great relatively fast acting cure.. I don't leave home without it..

A big dose of Prednisone or a shot of steroids fixes me pretty fast..

But I have had it for a week before and it will incapacitate you if you have it bad..

I have felt your pain fellows and I won't wish it on anyone..

No attacks in two years without medicine.. But eating ain't what it used to be..


Bacon too!?!? sheesh.

This. It's been five years for me since I started on Allopurinol. Once you get it will reoccur.

Same here. l take allopurinol once a day for over 30 years with no problem - eat and drink what I want. You don't want to get it too often or it will mess up the toe joint permanently. I had it three times before going on the allopurinol, and that was too much. My toe joint has bothered me mildly off and on ever since.

Spouse had it, uric acids levels too low for meds. Drink water, lots of it all day. He does this and has not had a flare in years. Still drinks beer and liquor, eats what he wants just drinks lots of water and pees all day, lol.
Our brewmaster friend has it and takes the meds, he gets swelling but not real flare ups. He still drinks beer and liquor but watches the amount of red meats he intakes, sausages included , and drink lots of water.

I've had gout on and off for the last 10 years. It is the most painful thing I have ever had. When I forst got it, started in the big toe then progressed to the ankle....Can't walk at all. Several times had to crawl to the restroom.

But the worst was when it hits my knee......OMG it is so dang painful. This pic doesn't do it justice...

I have tried Alapurinol, Uloric and none of them work. Indomethacin can help during an attack but usually its too late. Best advice I can give as a true expert is Black Cherry juice., Black cherry extract pills (GNC), water water water and more water.

Last attack and the left knee was exactly twice the size of the right....Took 11 days to subside.

Arginex from Standard Process helps for me. As soon as I feel an episode coming I start a high dose of 6-7 pills morning and evening until the pain subsides. The pain went from lasting a week or more to a day or two and doesn’t get near as severe. Bonus is it’s all natural.

I cannot imagine having gout in one of my knees, they would just have to put me to sleep for a week. Mine started in the big toe, then the ankles, then the wrist, I have to say the wrist was by far the worst. I tried the cherry juice, and all the other home remedies, did not work, been on alapurinol for a few years now, no attacks, eat and drink what I please. Also drink plenty of water, dehydration will trigger gout.

I've had gout three times in my life and I hope and pray that it never comes back. Big toe. Been 5 years since I had an episode. Weird as ever feeling it coming on. Don't know what triggered it but cherry juice and rest is all I did. Took about 5 days to get completely over it. Sounds like Allapurinol works for most. I hope the others recover quickly from it. PAINFUL is an understatement!
