    What you need is colchicine to bring the swelling down - to stop the attack by your immune system.

    Low tech solution: ice pack or hot water or alternate. You have to find which works for you. Keeping your foot high as possible could help.

    As for your boss - explain that it's either accept you in crocs or accept a sick note. Unless you are client facing or health n safety reasons, they would be foolish not to let you wear crocs.

      All my swelling has been gone a week, no redness etc however still limping with pain in my foot arch

      I was at work on 200 Allopurinol colchicine and co-codomol for the pain but I upped the allopurinol to 300 as felt it wasn't working and was at risk of going back on the sick, I'm just wondering why I still have the pain in the arch... any ideas

      Then you need water. You need to *urinate* (not drink) at least 2 liters per day, preferably 3 liters a day. Main side effect is spending a lot of time in the loo.

      Because usually when it's in the arch it's either plantar fasciitis or heel spur. Consider seeing a podiatrist who may recommend a cortisone shot. I've had this too so I know how painful it can be. However, don't get suckered into buying custom made orthotics, just buy the solid orthotics and insert them in every pair of shoes you wear. Podiatrist usually sell them or online. Make sure they have an arch too.

    Feeling your pain Jeff ....this is longest attack I have had 3 weeks in knee and still limping though not as sore

    Finished Colchicine two weeks ago and didn't clear this time ...

    Gonna ask to go on Daily meds when clears ..doc reckons it could attacks worsen by hypertension that I have

    It's enough to drive anyone to drink 😊

    I have some woollen slippers that are good from a shop called "Inspired Earth". If I go out I just put plastic bags over them and tie then around my calves. Any kind of shoe I find impossible. Not sure what the boss would say about it though?
