I have been suffering with gout for the past 10 years or so. I am a 35 year old male weighing about 14 and a half stone.
I take 300mg of allopurinol every day which does have an effect on whether attacks come on. However there are some things that come on even though I am taking them.
At the moment I have bad pain and swelling in my right hand which came on through repetitive strain from using my phone. Has anyone else had an attack like this?
I also get foot pain next day if I have been crouching with our kids for prolonged periods. This pain then moves throughout the foot into various areas. To be honest any repetition will bring joint pain.
The whole condition is really starting to get me down. I have really cut down on alcohol consumption but I feel like I am walking on egg shells with it all the time, just waiting on the next attack.
Look forward to hearing from you all with some words of wisdom!
