As if 2020 wasn't fucked up enough

  • Apparently 2020 wasn't fucked up enough so it decided I should get Gout.


    I know some of you old fuckers must have had/have this shit. So is there any "miracle" cure to get rid of a flare up?


    This shit fucking sucks...

  • That sucks man, hope you get it under control.

  • Interesting that it can occur after an injury. Motorcycle wreck in 2012 left me with the 3 plates and 32 screws in my arm, leg and ankle. My first attack was within 2-3 months of that but I didn't realize it at the time as it wasn't severe and I wrote it off as caused by the accident.


    "Gout is a type of inflammatory arthritis. An attack may come after an illness or injury. The first sign is often pain in the big toe. It usually affects one joint at a time, but gout can spread to other joints and leave them looking red and swollen."

    What the Fuck was that?

  • Hurts me enough that I gave up beer. Except for maybe 2 or 3 a year. Some alcohol is higher in purines than others but all of it affects your kidneys ability to eliminate uric acid. I cut way back on red meat too.

  • You people are weak

    as I said before, you cannot outrun DNA, you can only soften or delay the crash but sooner or later, it catches you. my arthritis is ravaging me, some days I cant close my left hand much less even think about playing guitar - not to mention the rest of the body. I just try to make the most of everything between flare-ups.

  • I woke up in the middle of the night with it about a year ago, throbbing, red, warm to the touch and hurt way more than you would think, did some internet searching and tried a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar (make sure it says with the mother on the label) with water once a day and it cleared up completely after a few days so I drink it every morning now, my knees don’t make noise when I walk up stairs any more either.

    Just yesterday a woman asked my age. I replied happy to be married. She said I'll bet shes the happy one.


    I told her 65. She said you don't move like 65.

    What the Fuck was that?

  • Well, I never drink beer so that's not an issue. But this shit is painful. Especially when I have it elevated watching tv and the 5 year old runs past and accidentally swats it.


    A friend said he had an attack about 5 years ago. He was told to drinking and all the other stuff you guys have said. He never did and hasn't had a flare up since.

    So I ain't changin shit for now. But if this happens again I'll be rethinking my choices.

  • I used to take colchicine and indomethacin on gout flair ups. Shellfish of much of any quantity triggers it and too much pop. I have even discovered this year that 3 10 oz bottles of low sugar Gatorade a day triggers it too.


    Just saw my dr last week and she said when I get tired of my foot hurting she can prescribe allopurinol. I just so far didn’t want to go for several blood tests to get dosage right.

  • Why dont you eat healthier and run every day?

  • Yeah. Shove them right up your ass and kneewaddle
