I am a Vietnam Veteran and dealt with plenty injuries but this gout is starting to take the blue ribbon. I wasn't a heavy meat eater unless at a cook out. But last 6 months the Allopurinol at 200mg no longer is helping. VA medical staff doubt I'm suffering gout because it attacks my upper spine, hands and ankle. Then big toe. Even with my uric acid levels between 6.0 to 8.0 I'm still getting horrid flare ups.
The doctor swares up and down I cant be having an attack in the spine.
Ive since stopped eating meat. and also having difficulty eating beans, soy milk.
I am running out of ideas to treat this. Cherry juice and valarian root isn't helping.
