I'm 26 years old and was recently diagnosed with gout. I have not had a flare, knock on wood, however I do feel tingling-ness from time to time by my toe joint after I consume too much meat or sweets.. my doctor prescribed me uloric because my uric level came out to be 9.5. My question is, I do not have any flares, have not had any, knock on wood, if I start taking uloric, will it cause flares? I've read that uloric causes flares (the bad before the good I guess, getting rid of the uric acid now for the better).. I'm worried that once I start taking it I will get flares.
Has anyone experience this too? No flares, diagnosed with gout, prescribed uloric, took uloric..... Then?
Did you have a flare/flares? If so, how soon they they occur after taking uloric and how long did they last?
To tell you guys the truth, i am scared. I've even changed my diet. I use to eat what I want when I want, do not like sea food, raw food, liver, organs, do not like beer but will occasionally drink it.. when I say occasionally, I mean once in a blue moon, a sip here and there. I'm more of a margaritas and shots here and there type of person. That being said, I only drink occasionally.. once a month or two months. Love sweets, cake ice cream etc but I feel like I don't consume it that much.... Also, my work schedule is very strict. I'm not sure if I will be able to hold up during the flares or take a week off for recovery..
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and stay healthy my friends!!
