|hi all, I have suffered gout now for 17 years.....It is an on going problem I have with me never knowing if I am going to be able to get up in the morning!! I am typing this with great difficulty as I am currently suffering with attacks in both hands/wrists and fingers...Both feet and in my left elbow this is the first time I have suffered with my elbow, I fell off my bike about 2 months ago and once the pain from that had healed I started getting the gout...Could this be connected??? I am taking 1600 mg of ibupaphen as well as paracetamol 3 or 4 times daily.
When my attacks are really bad I get really bad flue symptoms through out my body and in the night I sweat buckets with me waking up freezing cold and soaking wet! Does anyone else have this problem???
Lucky for me at the moment I have not got it in my knees.. I would not be able to walk at all..This has lasted 6 to 8 weeks before!
Now complaining over!!!
I have come across this site tonight and the first thing I am going to try tomorrow is baking soda!!!
I have only 2weeks before my vacation which I really really do not want to miss!! I prey it works!!
I will post a report in a few days.....Keep your fingers crossed for me! :lol:
