Been suffering with gout on and off for 20 years. Male in my early fifties now and keep myself in great condition. Lift weights and keep my muscles in top shape. Eat fairly healthy and avoid a lot of purine-rich foods. Don't drink any alcohol ever.
I do have stage 2 liver disease, stage 3 kidney diseasel, and high blood pressure. My nephrologist has advised me not to take any NSAIDS. I can't take colchicine even the slightest makes me sick and is not good for the organs anyhow. Forget indocin...I almost went to the ER after taking it because my heart started racing, couldn't catch my breath, and I generally felt like was going to go into cardiac arrest. Do to my other health issues, taking Allipurinol or the like to mitigate further attacks is out of the question.
I've been in shear agony for 10 days. Started in my right great toe, then the left great toe, the left ankle, and now it's in all of those and the second last toe on the right foot. I'm so p*ssed and depressed, I can't even put it into words. No sleep, can't work, in constant pain with no medication to help me. I can't put any pressure on the joints without excruciating pain and I'm crawling around the house. I'm literally out of my mind with this crap.
I guess this is more of a rant than anything and I appreciate you reading it.
