Pullin' for ya, Roy...

Mine flare up once in a while on my right foot... it sucks. Low purine diet will help.
To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, all variables must be remove or at least minimize.

Re: Gout wth!!!!

I did the gall bladder deal and the kidney thing. At least when that's over it's over. Gout can and probably will come back and the gout medicine can be bad for your remaining kidney. The same things that can cause gout can cause kidney stones. They're real fun. Had one in elk camp one year.---down the mountain to the hospital for two days. Got out and shot a bull with my muzzle loader that evening. When a gout or kidney stone attack is over it's over---until the next attack. +1 on the low purine diet.

Good luck. I found that if I cut out shrimp, crab and lobster the flare ups went away. Try Allopurenol. I keeps mine under control...

Re: Gout wth!!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please go to the Dr. and find out if you really have gout or something more sinister.
My father had gout so therefore I figured the owwies that I was feeling was the gout. I fooled myself for about 20 years. I found out that I have severe rhumatiod arthritis and a few other select named things.
As of now I have very few joints that don"t need replacement and I can't afford the super meds to stop RA. I can't afford the joint replacents either.
I have no real life now and it appears that my life won't be getting any better.
I have a hard time shooting, flyfishing, walking, dishes etc. etc.
I am only 51 years old and I am useless as compared to what I used to do.
Take care of yourself. JW
