    Crap, I'm trying to laugh this pain off, but it hurts.? I wish I could just sit here with a bottle Bushmills or a Bob Marley-sized joint, work, and forget the pain.?


    Very well said!

    Nate, I am on the same boat as you, friend. I haven't had an attack in 9 months! Alas, all good things must come to an end especially for us gout-sufferers. You offered a lot of insight and info (Shout out to Trev and everyone else who offered wisdom and support!) when I posted my first 'Forum Topic'/cry for help:?Hereditary Gout at 23.?

    I was prescribed Allopurinol in early February this year. It worked like a charm, and I thought “Goodbye Gout!”. I watched what I ate and exercised regularly….that is, until the Holidays came. I'm currently in the throes of one of the worst attacks?(then again, aren't they all? lol!)?I've had . I was reckless with a non-existent diet, and had 'fallen off the wagon' like a former alcoholic at the Jack Daniels distillery! ??

    Anyways, I thought I'd drop by to offer support. I hope you feel better, bro.?

    Here's a link for a dialogue between Ben Franklin and the Gout I thought fellow gouties would enjoy:

    Gotta run! ….or limp

    Thank you all very much for your tips and support!

    Trev and Nate, thank you both for your advice and insight. 

    I will be meeting my doctor this coming week to get a read-out on my UA level. From there, a rheumatologist  and a dietician.

    Again, thanks to all of you. This is all very encouraging!
