    I'm layed up with the gout for the second time in a month.It started coming on Sunday, at the top of my left foot just past the ankle. It made shifting my motorcycle yesterday a challenge to say the least.

    It was so bad today that I had to call in sick to work today because I couldn't walk, after barely making it out of the shower. Probably time to go back on the medication. :(

    I knew a guy with the Gout. Why not just always take the pills? Have you been eating the "wrong things"? /Nannymagnet

    Sounds like that decision really paid off in the end.

    At least the old bag has the middle finger shovel nail for nose picking and diaper scratching.

    Let me guess you take Indomethacin... which used to feel like a ninja throwing star going through my guts but it worked.

    I recently changed to Colcrys which unfortunately is not available as a generic (as it is a reformulated herbal remedy) but it works with out the gut churning and higher blood pressure. I take it when I feel and attack coming on.

    Only other thing I would suggest is getting some cherry juice (real cherry juice not like Cran-Cherry or whatever) from prob one of those health food stores and drink a lot of water.

    Could be worse... I used to have a customer that would get it in his shoulder blades... gah.

    Oh and lay off the foie gras

    This thread reminded me I have to re-do the grout in my mom's kitchen some time this summer.

    Yes, indocin is what you take to deal with an outbreak. 3 times a day, with food, unless you just hate your own guts, is typical. As far as a daily preventitive, I was on allopurinol.

    I have 4 bags of frozen cherries in the freezer, and have been making cherry smoothies for meals today. Also been taking some aspirin and staying hydrated.

    I absolutely MUST be somewhere tomorrow, so I'm trying to get to a point of at least being abulatory by then.

    You sure its gout and not tendonitis?
    Pain in the top of the foot is rarely gout, usually nerve damage, stress fracture, or tendonitis.
    I got it in both feet, fortunately alternately, from cheap walmart steel-toe shoes that aggravated
    the tendon on the second toes until they got all fucked up. They get mostly better fairly quickly
    when you get rid of the cause, then its tolerable until it fixes itself as best it can in a couple months.

    As a gout sufferer myself, I found this line from Shameless to be one of the best descriptions of it ever.

    My doctor suggested a daily drug... ummm trying only to take stuff when I need it... due to the wacky side effect shit... known or unknown...

    Nope, pretty sure it's gout. It's almost exclusively in my ankles, and it always has been. I've had it for years, and been properly diagnosed with x-rays and blood tests. It comes on for no apparent reason mostly in my ankles (once in a while in the metatarsal-phlangeal joint too), gets the skin red to the touch, and goes away on its own after a few days of misery and inability to bear weight.

    I'm starting to get it with increasing frequency, which means a doctor visit is probably in my future.

    Welp, made it through the day with the aid of 4 Demerol, 6 aspirin, 2 Talwin, and 1 ibuprofen. While perusing the pain pill stash, I found a couple indocin and took them too.

    My foot is nice and red, with hot swelling, but by god I got to meet the governor today.

    Gout in the tarsometatarsal joint of the pinky toe.

    Took WAY too much Talwin this morning. Since I have zero tolerance for pain medication, I was feelin damn good.
