5 years ago, I had 2 gout attacks. The pain was intense and if you got one around the big toe, walking would be near impossible.

Gout causes could be (1) dietary e.g. alcohol, consuming too much purine-rich vegetables e.g. beans, (2) poor physical shape, (3) genetics and (4) if one is suffering from other medical problems. For me, it's a combination of dietary, being in poor physical shape and being over weight.

I would suggest working on your diet first. Stay clear of those food that could induce gout. Once the swell subsides (with injection and medication), start an exercise regime to get in better shape.

i suffered gout for almost 3 years. even during my NS life, advice for u.

lose weight if u are overweight

keep track of what u eat, i'm sure there is a list of food to avoid when gout occurs,

drink more water can flush out the acid that become crytal and attack your joint,

have enough sleep, meaning to say. at least 7 hours of good sleep.

wish u all the best!

cherry juice are not easy to find..and cherries fruit itself is available at certain supermarkets only depending on season..its natural and works wonders
Yes dark red cherry is very good for anti inflammation so it's good for gout , arthritis. I know this supplement that has high contents of that and is good for these problems. Pm me if interested. Just sharing what I know

SINGAPORE - Soy products do not increase the risk of gout, and people who already have the condition can eat them, a new local study has found.http://www.straitstimes.com/singapor...al-study-finds

this article says sex helps if you're a man. http://www.health911.com/gout

I guess if you mustn't involve your toe.

Seriously, different foods will affect different people so you've got to try and find what triggers it. Otherwise the docs will prescribe Allopurinol and Colchine, an anti inflamatory agent once it starts.

I like the sex solution.

Heed the advice, hfcs , sugar processed foods are root causes for all inflammation, gout is just one variant

This is my first posting here. I am seeking advise from gout sufferers. First time gout trouble.
I am currently suffering from acute gout attack. Attack is on ankle area. It started with gradual pain on foot at night. I couldnít walk first thing in the morning. Foot was swollen and the incredible pain caused me sleepless nights. Next few days I couldnít walk. Had blood test. Doctor prescribed Colchicine for 3 day treatment. Swelling subsided and couple of days later, I had itchy skin rashes on my ankle area. Doctor said the rashes are not due to Colchicine.
Two weeks on, ankle feels tight and crushing pain even lifting my foot up a bit in bed. Foot is a bit swollen. I donít know what to do. Doctor prescribed NSAID drugs. I am still off work and is worrying.

Has anyone had similar experience? If so, please describe. I didnít know gout attack can last that long and have such serious effects. I donít understand the rashes.

Allopurinol has been mentioned a lot here in the forum. I am uncertain whether I should be on lifetime Allopurinol. Any advice? I read Allopurinol lowers uric acid level. Will Allopurinol prevent future attack? If thereís a good chance of another attack, whatís the use on Allopurinol? Does on Allopurinol give me a bit of freedom of consuming occasional high purine food or drink? I am unsure about the long term side effects and health vs enduring another serious episode of acute attack.

Gout diet is confusing in some aspects. Can overeating the wrong food cause overnight flare up? I suppose is more an accumulating effect, no?

Please share your thoughts.

Gout usually last 3 to 10 days.

Colchicine is slow for treatment.
Nsaid much faster but bad for kidney.

Allopurinol is to help remove uric acid from your body.
I m on 400mg a day.
Taking forever .

Allopurinol lower your chance gout attack .

Gout can lead to kidney , heart disease , high blood pressure .

Loss weight n exercise help alot.


I use to have very serious gout problem.
An attack every 1 month.

I eat nsaid n colchinice but not helping much.

My uric acid level is double of average before I visit gout specialist

The best is to visit a gout specialist , they can advise u better than gp.

Thank you for replying.
I will have to be careful on my diet. Once I am back on my feet, I have to start exercising.

Did you ever had Tophi? If so, did it resolve by itself or through Allopurinol?

To other gout victims: Has anyone on other uric lowering drugs other than Allopurinol? If so, what is your experience with other drugs?

Hi.. for friends who suffer from gout, please avoid red meats, beef,duck meat, nuts, soya beans products.

Also, avoid massaging on the gout affected area as it will spread. Whatever ointment you wish to apply, just tap on the area, impt avoid massaging.

Hope to help you all.
And as always, think good, do good and say good and all good blessings will come our way.

Friends who have more question on gout are welcome to pm me.
