Well here I am, Steve 43 uk, feeling sorry for myself lol.
I have had gout on and off for over ten years and even went 7 months without a hint once though don't know how as done nothing different and have never managed it since.
I am currently suffering the worst ever with the whole of my left foot twice the size of my right (I get gout in either foot just picked the left this time)
I can usually still walk with a limp even offshore on the rig I can get by. It I am on a 10 score pain and left to crawl around the house as can't weight bare (apparently I can still reprint all the skirting boards lol)
I have ordered crutches and knee pads as think it's a long job this time and due back offshore in 11 days but to be fair have seen gout come and go as quick.
One thing I have done is totally cut out alcohol started drinking green tea and also Cider Apple Viniger since Monday and the pain drops through the day and managed to sleep in my bed upstairs last night, the three nights before..... I never slept and was on the verge of calling an ambulance lol. Well I will let you know how I get on but fingers crossed
