Hi everyone. I’ve recently been diagnosed with a kidney condition which my consultant thinks may have been the cause of previous gout attacks. I was put on allopurinol to lower the uric acid levels and warned it may result in a gout attack. Well, it did, and I could not walk for days. The gout attacked my other foot which has so far been unaffected by gout. That was 4 weeks ago and I am still unable to walk properly. Now walking with a limp. Before this I was relatively fit and healthy, running, playing and coaching football. I’m 39 years old and this medication has changed my lif for the worse. I tried colchicine without success. I am thinking about stopping allopurinol to try get my life back. Please help!
