It's a true b**ch!!!

Had it in the big toe like many of y'all. Pain was greater than an displaced arm or a hyperextended knee.

After day 5, I tried cherries. Fresh and the dried. Drank 8 bottles of fresh water each day. 36 hours later, I was 50% better.

Almost gone now. Staying hydrated and consuming cherries a few times/week now.

give it a try. he was drinking about 1/4 3 times a day. he basically added a little water and some sugar and made it very strong lemonade.
How much lemon did he drink? 1/4 what, cup?

I figured lemons being so acidic would be detrimental to gout.

Ditto this. And it moves around, today in the wrist, next day somewhere else. Like it's looking for a weak spot to jump on with all its might.

When I have gone to the Doctor with an attack, they draw a blood sample. Surprisingly, that makes it go away. Makes you think that the Doctors of old, bleeding people were onto something. Guess it makes some sense. Could lower the uric acid level in the blood stream. So next time you get an attack, start sharpening all your knifes and broadheads until your slip, and then you're cured!

Shellfish and alcohol are my triggers if in excess. I have to be smart about it. I can start feeling my foot/big toe start to swell a day or so before it sets in. One of the most painful things I have endured.

I get it bout once a year in my left big toe but have never been to a dr about it and dont take any medication....last bout was unbearable so I went to doctor at 5pm. They prescribed me colchisine and it was almost gone the next day and completely gone the next evening. It was a life saver for me! Still got the bottle in my cabinet for next time!!

I get it, not bad but it runs in the family. My brother had it once and it was killing him. He called and ask what he could do the relieve the pain. I told him I mix butter and salt and put it on the area. Told him it won't cure it but helps. I called a hour later and he was in a recliner with butter and salt all over his foot. I still am laughing.

My Dad suffered from gout many years ago until he started taking Cherry juice concentrate. Puts a spoonful in a glass of water and drinks it twice a day. He's 88 years old now and is still gout free.

I get it also, when I flair up I go to the doctor and get a steroid and pain shot. Within a couple hrs I am good to go. For me that's the only way for it to go away the fastest.

Gout sucks donkeys
The only thing that really sets me off is some seafood, mainly shrimp. For the longest time as long as I avoided shrimp I didn't have issues. I'm now on allopurnol and have only had 1 flare up in the last year and half. I also eat clean now for the most part. I also noticed when I cut out the sugar I had fewer problems. My BIL's brother had to go straight vegan to get his under control. He would get huge knots on his joints and sometimes surgery to remove them. Hope you don't have to go as extreme as he did.

FWIW, I have been told by pharmacists and a couple of doctors not to use baking soda. They said, '"it is essentially throwing gas on a fire.'' I have been taking tart cherry extract caps and celery seed caps. Also recommended, garden of life raw organic perfect food (I have lemon-ginger). This works as quick and is better for you than baking soda.

Make cherries a part of your diet. I'll eat 10-15 a week. Gout never returned.

Eat only items that God made are exactly what this system of products are made of. But most would rather rely other sources.

"what God made", made me laugh a little... It sounds great y'all and I felt a little closer to heaven and all,,,,, but,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Venison, Duck, Goose, Hog, Asparagus, mushrooms, etc....... and a large list of "God Made" unprocessed foods are very BAAAAD for gout.

I'd like to see some folks get religious when that flare-up is in full swing.... actually they probably will be,,, saying is "Oh Gaaaawwwwd Kill me now"


Allupurinol is definitely God made and God sent

Since I found out my Uric Acid was high,
1. I've tripled my daily water intake.
2. Completely quit alcohol. (November will be 1 year)
3. try to not eat meat at least one day per week.
4. Take 300 MG Alupurinol daily.

I've never had a flare up (knock on wood), even though my uric acid was a staggering 15 ... (any number over 5 or 6 is considered high)

I changed my diet back in early June to loose weight and get my lipids down. Guess I was eating to many purines. And got an education on what gout is back in August. So I readjusted my diet again, both in the meats and vegetables as well as quantity I consume. I know it's there. It sits like a cat in a bush, waiting on a bird to land!


As for my weight, I'm down 43 lbs since June . Got another 25 to go by January. And my lipids test came back with very good results last week
! Got to get my HDL up though. Just watching what and how much I eat. And riding a bike some.

On a supreme pizza.... hamburger, sausage, tomato sauce.. all are bad to raise uric acid level. Iíve found that tomato and tomato products are bad for me.

I now take allopurinol daily as well for maintenance and colcrys for flare ups.

My biggest trigger is catfish from dirty water and blue crab. Fish from clear water does not bother me.

Very red meats bother me as well. (Venison, buffalo, elk, axis etc etc )

I cannot eat processed meat of any kind. I rarely drink so no problems there.

Cannot eat jerky unless its been cooked rather than dried or dehydrated.

I have learned to eat only fresh foods and I cook any red meat I eat very well done. Except for steaks I refuse to over cook them. Sometimes gout is worth it

I have also learned that if i am working out and losing weigh I will get flareups regardless of what I eat.

I was having flareups every 3-5 days for several years. Mine was so bad I have some joint dis-figuration in my toes. Allopurinol made my flareups worse so I couldn't take it.

My endocrinologist and I put a game plan together to get it under control.
I finally went about 180 days only eating vegetables and grilled chicken, then I was able to start allopurinol.

Been under control since maybe a slight flare up every 3-4 months.
Shellfish is the worst source of purines

I had it for years, and took allopurinal for years too. I very rarely drink anymore but I havenít changed my diet at all and I ditched the meds a few years ago. I must not have had it bad as some of yíall, but that first flare up was my left big toe and it was real ! You couldnít touch that sucker with a bed sheet !
