Suffered since I was 18 years old...or around there.
Colchicine is a very old remedy (It works)...but it's a poison.It helps the body get rid of the Urates and everything else! If the Colchicine levels become toxic, and they can...Look out.It's like the worst diarrhea that you have ever had.Not great for the kidneys either.
Normally (But not always) gout is Hereditary. If you have a touch of the tar in your family, then you have five times more chance of getting this disease.
Lots and lots of water and staying away from foods high in purines.
Allopurinol and ice packs work for me.Been taking Allopurinol since I was in my 20's.Allopurinol is a preventer. Plus NSAIDS.
Get Acute Gout and you will think that the world is coming to it's end. It scares the living shite out of me to even think about it. Get this and the best remedy is a cortisone injection into the joint.I'd rather jam my prick in a car door before I would do this again.(And I've done it three times)......Not the door mind....so I take my Allopurinol every day without fail.
My Uncle was one of the worst cases in the country...followed by my old man. Had a blood study done on him by a professor at the Auckland med school many years ago.
Stress is also a large contributor and can bring on attacks. This phenomenon was first noticed by medical staff during the second world war.
Alcohol is a diuretic, so it is the last thing that you need. Good hydration is a plus.
Crystals normally form in the extremities, where the blood is cooler. That's why it is common in the toes . Get it the knee or any other large joint and the pain can be 10 fold

I have been in the Fellowship of AA since 1984 & never had gout. That means zilch.
We all get our share of shit in different forms and degrees. Now, I do not fight Nature. I will not mention as this is not the correct platform.
My daily goal is to live life on life's terms, listen to and empathize with others. Give another being a helping hand if appropriate & mind my own business (the hardest part). As a result of physical pain, I average 2 hours sleep per night. Now that I accept this phenomenon, life is good.
