I at 36 am relatively young for Gout but have suffered from it for almost ten years now. Too much booze for too many years, a poor diet and the fact my father has it has also ensured I suffer from it.
I recently had a very bad attack and I can honestly say that I really wanted to chop my foot off. :shock: However after several visit to the Dr I finally found one that appeared to take me seriously. In the past I have tried cherries, cherry tablets, celery, celery tablets and all sorts of odd diets, but it simply does not work. However, my Dr gave me Solpadol 500mg pain killing tablets and a batch of Colchicine tablets (be careful with these I was advised only to take 12 and then I couldn't take anymore for a few weeks). The combination of the two sorted my out double quick and although I will probably suffer all my life I can control it with these pain killers.
I keep a stock of diclofenac and pain killers in the house and although it might sound a bit mad, I take soem where ever I go. I have suffered many broken bones and a serious back injury in my life, but very few things came close to the pain levels with gout. Not even suffering slipped disks was this bad.
